TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Bailey Elliott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 January 1902
DescriptionHarrison communicated Elliott's views regarding referees for Professor K Pearson's paper, 'Mathematical Contributions XI', to Dr [Joseph] Larmor, but Lamor thinks the Treasurer [Alfred Bray Kempe] would not be gratified by having the paper referred to him. Larmor says Mr Galton is probably abroad and is not a mathematician, and therefore suggests Professor G H Darwin and Professor A E H Love, as referees. Asks if Elliott agrees with this suggestion.
