TitleCopy letter from Robert Frederick William Harrison, to Professor George Howard Darwin, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 May 1897
DescriptionHarrison has received answers approving the reference of Maudslay's paper from all members of the Mathematical Committee excepting Dr [Ernest William] Hobson. Was awaiting receipt of them all before contacting Darwin. Wonder's if Darwin can obtain Hobson's opinion at Cambridge.

Harrison will hand Dr Tylor's letter regarding the advisability of accepting the paper by the Royal Society, to Professor [Arthur William] Rucker, whom he expects to see today.

Has the letter about the lady's ticket for the June Soiree and will submit it to the proper authority.
