TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Professor Ernest Henry Starling FRS
Date27 April 1915
DescriptionHarrison encloses a letter from the Board of Agriculture regarding money [no enclosure].
Harrison writes that it has not been practice for the Royal Society to keep detailed accounts of expenditure on special enquiries subsidized by the Government, and he does not think it would work well in this case. Practice has been to pay over lump sums and request 'him' to account at regular interval, with vouchers. Harrison thinks it would be much more convenient to render quarterly rather than monthly.
