TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor to, Sir Michael Foster, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date27 January 1903
DescriptionSets of the minutes of Council from 1887[?] are being made up, and Larmor will send them to Foster and Gifford. A letter has arrived stating that Sir Maxwell would like 6 February if that suits Foster. [Sir Arthur William] Rucker is somewhat impatient[?] about merely being a stop-gap.

[Robert William Frederick] Harrison is sending Foster a draft letter on Sleeping Sickness. [Lieutenant Colonel David] Bruce is in some trouble about the arrangements of the Foreign Office, and hopes that there will be nothing to hold up his investigation once he gets to Uganda.
