TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Armstrong, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date14 February 1898
DescriptionThe circular letter and enclosed paragraphs referred to in Armstrong's note were got out under the authority of the Secretaries, who believed that immediate action was necessary, in order to set the Sub-Committee at work in time before the next meeting of the Committees. Harrison sent out the only material had to hand as the basis of the schemes the Sub-Committee are expected to prepare. If Armstrong will provide a more explanatory instruction for circulation to the Sub-Committees Harrison will send them round, following sanction of the Secretaries.

The statement about 50 titles was given due to a reply from the Chair and generally expressed in reply to Professor Hallibruton who asked how long the illustrative schemes should be and asked if 50 papes would be sufficient.
