TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Silvanus Phillips Thompson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 February 1902
DescriptionMr Gifford's paper has been set down for reading on Thursday, and as the full paper is too long to set up in time for the meeting it would be useful to have a quite short abstract set up for use at the meeting. Asks if Thompson can get the author to provide something of the kind not later than Tuesday.
