TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Professor Karl Pearson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 February 1902
DescriptionAs Pearson has withdrawn his first, longer paper in reply to William Bateson, Lamor is enclosing it [no enclosure]. The subsequent short note was read in title this afternoon, and will at once be put in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'.

It will be the duty of the Secretaries to raise Pearson's general communication before Council, but Larmor is not presently clear what his point is. Believes there is a misunderstanding on the side of Pearson.
