TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [John] Perry, FRS
Date26 October 1917
DescriptionReminds Professor [John] Perry that some months ago the Society asked him to provide a photo of Professor Silvanus Thompson to accompany Professor Perry's biographical notice of him in the 'Proccedings'. Suggests that this request may have escaped Professor Perry's attention. Further notes that if he is struggling to find such a photograph, then the Society will look into obtaining one themselves.
