TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to, Professor John Bretland Farmer, Fellow of the Royal Society, Claremont House, Wimbledon Common
Date5 May 1903
DescriptionHarrison has tracked down the the position of affairs surrounding his and Mr Moore's paper. The proofs were not received back before the Easter vacation. The number of 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' was complete and Harrison was instructed to send it to press before the Easter vacation. Since Easter there has not been enough papers to make any number with his paper, which has not been considered large enough to constitute a number of 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' itself. Harrison apologises for this, and assures him that as soon as they get enough papers it shall be made up.
