TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Dr. [Henry Drysdale] Dakin, FRS
Date8 November 1918
DescriptionExpresses regret that Dr. [Henry Drysdale] Dakin has only received two copies of the Proceedings since his election. Notes that Dr. Dakin's copies of the Philosophical Transactions have been sent to him regularly, and suggests their failure to reach him is related to his postal service. Also informs Dr. Darkin that the Society has for him, as a member of the Physiological (War) Committee, a copy of the secret report issued by the Chemical Warfare Committee, however, that they will not send it under these current postal irregularities.
