TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph John Thomson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date27 September 1900
DescriptionOn returning from his holidays, Harrison finds Thomson's statements of claim for Monsieur [Antoine Henri] Becquerel for the Rumford Medal, and Professor [John Henry] Poynting for the Royal Medal, do not appear to have been received. These should all be in print without delay. Queries if Thomson's statement in favour of Poynting printed last year will serve for this year, and encloses a copy in case Thomson wishes to add to it [not attached].
