TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to [Henry Frederick] Baker, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 June 1901
DescriptionIn reply to his letter to Professor [Arthur William] Rucker, Harrison tells Baker that it would be throwing a special burden on the office to make the exceptional communications he suggests for one Fellow, and it would be difficult to ensure it was regularly carried out. The usual course is for the Fellow to note from the list of titles of 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society'] papers any paper he wishes to have sent to him. If Baker could do this it would be the easiest way to meet his views.
