|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to J. Toon Esquire; 29 Woodland Road, Gorton
|28 February 1916
|Reply to an earlier letter from J. Toon Esquire. Informs Mr. Toon that as he is not a qualified chemist the Royal Society has no power to intervene against his being called up for military service. However, as Mr. Toon is a member of the dyeing trade, he is still entitled to make a claim as being in a reserved occupation under that heading.
