TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Tempest Anderson
Date14 October 1902
DescriptionHas been talking to Sir Michael Foster and Dr [Joseph] Larmor regarding the reading of Anderson's paper and they all think it best to open the session with this paper on 20 November. This will give Anderson an opportunity to show his slides and for Anderson or Flett to both have their say.

Is sending by post today four negatives which Collings has brought back and which he says are all that he had. The only other negatives Harrison had are two which Dr Flett brought to the Society whilst Harrison was away marked 't be engraved for report'. Queries if he should send these on as well.
