TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Michael Foster, [Secretary, Royal Society]
Date13 July 1899
DescriptionHas Foster's letter and enclosures but as yet no telegram from the President. In the meantime Professor [Arthur William] Rucker has been in and Harrison has shown him Foster's letter. Rucker feels so strongly about some modification of Foster's [letter] to Sir C Markham, that he has had a copy of it made with his suggested modifications introduced. This and the original letter are enclosed [not attached].

From the enclosed extracts from the minutes Foster will see there is no rule laid down about convening meetings [no enclosures].

Since the Joint Committee gave powers to Sub-Committees to co-opt members not on the Joint Committee, Harrison suggested the simplest plan regarding Admiral [William James Lloyd] Wharton would be to ask Sir L McClintock and any other chairmen to get Wharton co-opted.
