TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur William Rucker, Secretary, Royal Society
Date30 June 1897
DescriptionHarrison has Rucker's letter enclosing the manuscript statement 'Intern. Catalogue', which Harrison has sent off to the printers, but there was no letter enclosed from Dr Armstrong in with Rucker's. It will be a big task to get this set up and printed off in time to circulate before Friday. The only chance of members seeing it before the meeting is not to attempt to correct the proof, but to have 30 pulls of the first proof and send it around as 'Uncorrected'.

As a Sub-Committee was appointed to prepare this draft, Harrison wonders if they out to consider it before it is discussed by the whole Committee. In which case he wonders if Rucker ought to have a meeting of the Sub-Committee before the full Committee on Friday.
