TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Karl Pearson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date31 May 1901
DescriptionHarrison replies to his letter enclosing the abstract of his 'Mathematical Evolutions' paper explaining that he is officially bound to send the printed letter to every author stating the remaining days left in a session and asking him to name a day, but he acknowledges his postcard indicating 20 June would suit him better. Informs him he will ask the Secretaries if they can promise it will not be taken later than that, which would ensure Pearson a hearing for an oral exposition.
