TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Professor John Theodore Cash FRS
Date10 August 1916
Description'Your letter of July 28th at first puzzled me, but I gather now that the document send under seal is deposited here in order to secure priority.
I am informed that the tradition of the Society is strongly opposed to receiving sealed documents and I therefore am returning the envelope to you.'
