TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Dr Gilbert Walker FRS, Farnley, Lymington, Hampshire
Date21 May 1915
DescriptionHarrison writes to tell Walker that the Royal Society Council passed a resolution that a sum of £50 be grant out if the Observatories Committee apply for a grant for Professor Fowler.
It would be necessary that a definite application be sent to the Royal Society and it may be difficult to get the Committee together next week.
