TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Augustus Desire Waller, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 February 1904
DescriptionHarrison will retain Waller's note and enclosure until Waller wishes him to produce it. He explains that Bose's paper has just gone to the printers as he only received authority to set up its Abstract in type that morning, so it seems unlikely they will get proofs until just before the meeting; as soon as they arrive they will be made available for Waller.

Harrison believes that Professor Sidney Howard Vines, who communicated the paper, intends to be present to read or at least expound the paper, so it should be more than a case of it being read in title only.
