TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Richard Tetley Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date21 November 1898
DescriptionCannot trace any reply from Glazebrook regarding Mr C T R Wilson's paper which was referred to Glazebrook some considerable time ago with a letter from Professor [Arthur William] Rucker, asking for Glazebrook's concurrence in the nomination of referees.

Does now know if Rucker has personally communicated to Glazebrook's that the question of the appointment of Joule Student has been referred to the Physics and Chemistry Committee by the Council for consideration and report, and as Glazebrook's Committee will in the ordinary course be meeting next week, he may like to consider the matter beforehand. Provides a reference to the appointment to the Joule Studentship in the yearbook.
