TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to T H Middleton CB
Date6 July 1915
Description'We should be very glad if we could have a reply from your department to our letter sent recently submitting the terms of the arrangements proposed to be made between our Committee and the Lister Institute for the use of their land at Elstree. I was to await your Dept. approval of the arrangement before sending it on as an approved Minute to the Lister Institute, and they are beginning to worry me for it.
It is about time now to render our quarterly account of the expenditure. Shall I send one in spontaneously or wait for a request from your Office to furnish one in a specific form? I am sorry to trouble you and remain.'
