TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Karl Pearson, Fellow of the Royal Society, 7 Well Road, Hampstead, N.W.
Date29 September 1899
DescriptionApologizes that his enquiry should have given Pearson the trouble of writing at any length about Mr [Louis Napoleon George] Filon's paper. Describes the usual procedure of the Society regarding reporting on papers and why this was not followed in this instance.

Pearson's notes were duly sent to Professor [Augustus Edward Hough] Love who has returned them with a simple report against the paper. Harrison asks Pearson to embody his opinion in a report so that he can lay both before the Chairman.
