TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society
Date9 October 1903
DescriptionForgot to speak to Larmor the previous day about sending round the reports of the Observatories Committee. Asks if they should leave out the suggestion of Committee members that they should communicate with the Astronomer Royal direct and say that they should communicate with the Secretaries of the Royal Society, or at the most, with the Chairman. Past experience with this Committee has been that when communications took place direct to the Astronomer Royal, they were often lost to sight for a 'very long time'.
