|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Sydney John Hickson, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||14 June 1902|
|Description||Harrison does not want to be difficult or appear officious, but it his duty to warn authors if they send in papers which appear to be irregular. The procedures for papers were codified and modified in 1896, and the Secretaries are clear that any manuscript received must be treated as a complete communication, anything else that comes in must be treated as a separate communication.|
Does not want to labour the point of precedent, but the two papers Hickson mentions, by Professors Bridge and Haddon were treated as separate papers. Asks if it is possible to have the full paper by Keeble and Gamble for the meeting, or if he is happy to accept the manuscript he has as a full paper by itself, and if so, is it meant for 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' or 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'.
