DescriptionHarrison has waited to formally acknowledge the receipt from Falk of the [George] Boole manuscripts until the Council had met and Harrison could give the acknowledgement in their name and at the same time convey to Harrison the resolution which was passed at their recent meeting; that the thanks of the Society be tendered to Flak for the trouble he has taken in arranging and copying the manuscripts. Harrison has mentioned the manuscript to Dr [Olaus Magnus Friedrich Erdmann] Henrici, who takes great interest in Boole's writing and is coming to look at the manuscript.
