|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Editor, "Natural Science", care of Messrs Rait, Henderson & Company, 22 St Andrew Street, Holborn Circus, E.C.|
|Date||28 April 1896|
The fact of my having only this week taken up my new duties here must be my excuse for not replying sooner to your letter of the 21st April. Upon the enquiry therein contained I have to say that the paper to which you refer will be printed in full by the Society eventually. In the case, however, of abstracts being sent at the request of the author to your and other journals, the question of publication in full by the Society is a matter for after consideration.
I am, yours truly,
Asst Sec R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
