TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to John Cunningham McLennan, [Fellow of the Royal Society], University of Toronto,Toronto, Canada
Date2 May 1900
DescriptionAcknowledges McLennan's letter of 19 April. Queries if McLennan accepts the modifications to his paper suggested by the Committee of Papers and whether he authorizes Mr Wilson so carry these out.

Explains why it is quite impossible now to provide 100 copies of the paper in print by 1 June. If McLennan has retained a copy of the paper, he might have such copies as he requires for the purposes of his degree privately printed. No objection would be made to this provided the paper was not published in any way independently of the Society.
