TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Reverend F H Jackson
Date14 December 1903
DescriptionReceived Jackson's letter of 24 November enclosing a short mathematical paper and had already written a reply to the effect that he could not receive any paper not communicated by a Fellow, but one of the principal Secretaries has looked through it and taken it upon himself to communicate it.

The paper was read at last Thursday's meeting and is now being considered for publication. If recommended for publication a proof will be sent for correction in due course and Harrison asks if Jackson has any other address at which he should be contacted in the next month or so. If the decision is against publication the paper will be preserved in the Society's archives.
