TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Meyer Wildermann, Davy-Faraday Laboratory, Albemarle Street, W.
Date24 February 1897
DescriptionHarrison sends a type written copy of Wildermann's paper on freezing points [not attached]. The paper is longer and presented more difficulties to the copyist than Harrison had supposed, so that it has taken a considerable time to type. Harrison finds that page 16 of part II of the manuscript is missing, and has been unable to trace it. The manuscript was fastened together as soon as it came in to the Society and Harrison cannot account for the loss. He trusts that Wildermann will be able to make good the omission.
