TitleLetter from Gilbert [Charles] Bourne; Twyning Manor, near Tewkesbury; to William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date2 April 1925
DescriptionAsks how much time the work Hardy suggests [into researching and presenting a report on the question of publishing scientific results] would require. Also notes that travelling to London is inconvenient from his current home. Discusses the potential importance of publishing scientific results, and notes that while he would like to help, if there is the prospect of it developing into a full-time job then that would be difficult to travel. Wants to take on work of this kind, as he is anxious to find some work to do.
