TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date2 June 1896
DescriptionAsks Foster to consider the following and let him know his opinion when he comes to the Society tomorrow.

Asks if Foster agrees that the last paragraph in the accompanying letter by Mr Glazebrook should be left out altogether [no attachment]. Harrison thinks the question of acceptance and reading should be kept distinct in point of time from all questions of subsequent publication, so that directly a paper is accepted, it may be set up ready for reading.

In the case of 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' papers, the referee's letter would serve quite well with the erasure or one or two words.
