TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Charles Chree, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 July 1902
DescriptionHarrison is sorry for the mistake in 'Nature' which attributes the communication of Dr [Louis Napoleon George] Filon to Professor Darwin. The error must have occurred during the chaos of the Soiree week. A correction will be printed in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'.

When the Mathematics Committee referred the paper to him, they had the cover before him with his name on it, so it must have been deliberate. As he does not wish to report on the paper, asks if he will return it.

Notes his request for a copy of his discussion of the 'Southern Cross' magnetic results, and will no doubt be able to send him one.
