TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Napier Shaw, [Fellow of the Royal Society], Emmanuel College, Cambridge
Date29 March 1897
DescriptionHarrison is obliged for Shaw's letter of the previous day relating to Sworn's paper sent to Shaw on the 12th. If Shaw could manage to send in his report on the paper before 6th April it would considerably expedite the decision as to its fate, as the Sectional Committee meet on that day and the Council meet the following Thursday.
