TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor E Wilson, King's College, Strand, W.C.
Date3 June 1902
DescriptionRegarding their paper 'The Dissipation of Energy by Electric Currents induced in an Iron Cylinder when rotated in a Magnetic Field', Harrison has been directed to ask, in view that the appendix exceeds the normal length of a short paper for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', whether he would agree to cut Table Two and figures three, four, five and six in the Appendix, as these are not strictly necessary for the paper.
