The reports will be considered by the International Committee, which is to prepare the final scheme within nine months. |
Two vacant places were reserved on the International Committee in the hopes that they would be filled by representatives of Russia and Italy and the Society will shortly ask the Foreign Office to request the Russian Government to nominate a member of the committee. Asks if Mendeleeff will do what he can to interest the Russian Government in the matter and secure a favorable reply.
Sends three copies of the report of the Royal Society considered at the conference. Nearly all the details therein proposed are subject to revision by the Committee and the Society desires a Russian member to assist in the revision. Draws special attention to the proposals regarding language.
