TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Robert Bellamy Clifton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date9 January 1902
DescriptionHas received Clifton's telegram stating it is unnecessary to call a meeting of the Physics Committee for next Thursday. Encloses a proof of the minutes of the last meeting of the Committee which should be returned amended or approved [not enclosed].

When writing yesterday Harrison overlooked the fact that with regard to Mr Andrews' paper, Dr Larmor had suggested Harrison write to the author on behalf of the Committee to tell him that they propose his diagrams be reduced photographically so as to occupy two octavo pages. If Clifton agrees with Larmor on this, Harrison will write at once.
