TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to F Enock, 54 St Mary's Terrace, West Hill, Hastings
Date26 July 1915
Description'I am very sorry to hear you are among those who has been hard hit by the war, and would do anything in my power to get you help for the publication of your monograph; but it is difficult to do anything just now when the Council sittings are over. Will it wait a few months? If so, it would be useful to know how much is required to get on with your work. Of course the Royal Society, like most other bodies, finds itself faced with large claims on its recourses owing to undertakings for which it is responsible and which cease to pay for themselves during the war, so that it is obliged to look with a very close eye upon all its grants.'
