TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to R T Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 June 1898
DescriptionIn reply to note, encloses the draft agenda for the Physics and Chemistry Committee [not enclosed]. There is not much to do unless some more referees' reports come in. Suggests looking at the report on Mallock by Professor Osborne Reynolds. Has advised Professor Reynolds to ask whether he advises the acceptance of Mallock's being read out or not, and asks for Glazebrook's views on this.

[Postscript note] The paper is rather a long one for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. There is the question of whether they should attempt to set it up for the meeting as there is no abstract.

Since writing to you Harrison has received the enclosed telegram [not enclosed] from Reynolds and contains no answer to any direct question. [illegible text].
