TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Frederick Chambers, Ivy Bank, Grove Road, Portland, Dorset
Date13 August 1915
Description'I much regret that I have as yet no decision to communicate to you concerning the paper by your late brother. The matter has not yet been closed and I must ask you to be good enough to wait a few weeks longer.
At present most of the members of the Committee are away, but as soon as I get into communication with the Chairman I will recall the matter to his memory, and I shall then be able to write you further and, I hope, convey some definite decision.'
