TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [John Ambrose] Fleming, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 March 1901
DescriptionHas received his report on Mr Williams's paper. Apologizes that the line in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' reference form which stated the paper had been accepted for reading, and the abstract ordered for publication in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' was not crossed out. Stresses they desire his opinion on whether the paper should be accepted. If he thinks it justifiable to print a paper of this length in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' could he write a statement for the Chairman.
