TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date21 July 1896
DescriptionProfessor [Frederick Orpen] Bower has been to see Harrison today and would like to be satisfied that there would be no objection from the Society to his publishing his paper in the same size and type as the 'Transactions [of the Royal Society]', without any reference to the Royal Society appearing. Bower's object is to make it uniform for binding.

Harrison imagines that as Bower is publishing himself the Society can have nothing to say as to the form in which he prints. Lists four enclosed items [no attachments]; letter from Sir S Samuel referred to in last night's letter, letter from F A Bather regarding a publication fund, copy letter from Princeton inviting delegates, and Council Minutes in slip.
