TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Andrew Russell Forsyth, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 November 1899
DescriptionProfessor Dixon's paper on systems of Pfaffian was recommended for publication by Forsyth's Committee subject to very material modification. When sending Forsyth the draft minutes Harrison meant Forsyth to draft a letter to the author dealing with the points raised. Asks if Forsyth will draft said letter. Is not quite clear how much of Professor Hill's report is to go to the author and should be glad to avoid is possible having much manuscript copied out at the Society for communication. Encloses Hill's report and asks for this to be returned with Forysth's reply [not attached].
