TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], Secretary, Royal Society
Date13 October 1896
DescriptionThere seems to be some doubt as to the authority for two small grants in aid of publication, claimed by Dr [John Newport] Langley for the 'Journal of Physiology', but for which there appears no resolution in the the minutes of Council or the Committee of Papers. Dr [Michael] Foster seems not to remember much about them or to know if they were intended as a charge on the new publication grant from Treasury.

The only authority Harrison can find is a pencil note by Rayleigh on the rough agenda of the Committee of Papers on 20th February. The grants are for £10 in respect of a paper by [Edward Albert Sharpey-]Schafer and Moore, and £15 for one by Dr Gulland.

Professor [Arthur William] Rucker has sent in his report of the recent Meteorological Congress at Paris. Asks is this should be sent to Rayleigh. Encloses a memorandum on these points to facilitate Rayleigh's reply.
