|Title||Copy letter from [Robert William Frederick Harrison], Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir R. Winfrey, Sutton House, Peterborough|
|Date||28 September 1916|
I have been absent through illness or would have replied sooner to your letter of the 25th. I fear Sir Alfred Keogh somewhat exxagerates the influence of the Royal Society in saying that all scientific posts in the army are made upon the Society's recommendation; but if Mr. Farrow would supplement his father's statement of his qualifications by a precise account of the character of the scientific work that he has carried out and the extent of his experience, I would put it forward in the proper quarter in case of there being any opening for his services.'
