TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [Arthur William] Rucker, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date26 June 1901
DescriptionHarrison would be obliged if Rucker could look over the minutes dealing with the Antarctic and with the National Physical Laboratory.

In the case of the Executive Committee, a year or so ago Rucker made out a list of names for the rota of retirement, but Harrison has no such list for the governing body, which he understands Rucker was to settle at last Council. If he has the list, Harrison would like to see it.
