TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Richard Tetley Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 January 1901
DescriptionQueries if Glazebrook can provide any information on the magnetic observations of the Borchgrevinck expedition which Harrison thinks were referred to him last month for examination. Mr Bernacchi has written to Professor [Arthur William] Rucker asking what has to be done with them, and since Rucker is now unable to attend to business, Harrison has to settle the matter with the Physics Committee.

Harrison has by him a report on the meteorological observations and queries if Glazebrook can send in his report in time for the next Physics Committee meeting, second week of February.
