TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to R W K Edwards, 10, Staple Inn, W.C.
Date4 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison states with regard to Edwards' paper 'A radial area-scale', as its communicator Dr Greenhill has already been informed, the Committee of publication believe its purpose will be served by printing the first five pages, and including a summary of the remainder of the Paper. He returns the manuscript to allow Edwards to make the proposed summary, and further enquires if the diagram may be reduced in size to enable it to fit into a Proceedings of the Royal Society page, and to alter the inch scale to millimetres.
