TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Karl Pearson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 February 1898
DescriptionAcknowledges letter of 5 [February]. Believes the private copies of Pearson's Cloudiness paper should have reached Pearson by now and has sent an enquiry to Messrs. Harrisons on the subject. Apologises for the delay, the printers have to wait until the issue of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' containing the paper is completed before taking out the separate copies.

There seems to have been some misunderstanding regarding Pearson's wishes for delivering of the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'.
