TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur William Rucker, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date6 April 1898
DescriptionIs sending this with two letters from Professor Turner and Captain Hills. The written statements read last Thursday are not going beyond the first proof stage until the matter is further considered after Easter. In the meantime, it seems a pity that the Soiree Sub-Committee, at the instigation of Professor Roberts-Austen, should have recommended that Sir N Lockyer be invited to give a demonstration at the Soiree of Eclipse observations. Harrison waits to hear from Rucker and Foster on this matter.
