TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to John Cunningham McLennan, Toronto
Date23 October 1900
DescriptionIn reply to McLennan's enquiry concerning private copies of his paper on the conductivity of gases, regarding the full paper in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]', 200 copies were ordered from the printers as per McLennan's order dated 2 July. These were ordered on 10 October and should be on their way to McLennan.

Regarding the abstract published in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' in number 431, Harrison does not find that the Society ever received any order for private copies of this. Hopes the 200 copies of the full paper may satisfy McLennan's needs.
