TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mrs Maria Gordon , 421 Union Street, Aberdeen, N.B.
Date23 November 1896
DescriptionHarrison is afraid he can not give a very precise answer to Gordon's query regarding the date of publication of her paper in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' but it should be out within a month. The illustrations, as in most cases, take the time. As regards priority of publication, reading the at Society constitutes publication for the purpose of establishing priority.
