TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to J H Smith, 33 Felden Street, Fulham, S.W.
Date12 May 1902
DescriptionHas received his letter referring to the attendance of his brother at the reading of his paper, and also covering a latter from Professor Osborne Reynolds to the same effect. Harrison was surprised to receive it, as the only paper the Royal Society have at present is one written in conjuncton with Reynolds, 'On a Throw-Testing Machine for Reversals of Mean Stress'. This was read in title on 20 March. Would be glad to know if this is the paper to which the letter refers.
