TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Andrew Russell Forsyth, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 January 1900
DescriptionAs Harrison may remember, the paper by Mr Yule, after going to Professor G Darwin and Professor [Walter Frank Raphael] Weldon, was referred to Henrici as third referee. The three referee's reports are enclosed [not enclosed]. Asks how to proceed.

Also sends a paper lately received from Professor Karl Pearson [not attached], who is anxious to have this printed in the 'Proceedings' to secure early publication, though the paper is estimated to occupy 20 pages. Rucker desired Harrison to send the paper to Forsyth and say that, although he is prepared, so far as he is concerned, to waive the 12 page limit, he prefers not to do so without Forsyth's concurrence.
