TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Professor William Palmer Wynne FRS
Date24 July 1915
Description'Your letter just received. It is a most extraordinary thing that you should seem to be singled out as a victim of mistakes either here or in the post or elsewhere in the matter of circular letters. There is certainly no difference in the treatment accorded to your name from that given to every other Fellow. Those last circulars were enclosed and addressed by the printers and sent here to be checked, and I can see no reason whatever why one should have failed to have reached you. Is it quite certain that these mistakes do not occur in delivery at your end?
I enclose a copy of the letter and two of three black schedules.'
