TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Ellis, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date7 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison is sending the requested volume of Proceedings of the Royal Society. Ellis' letter in response to the circular sent to Fellows of the Society regarding reduction in their stock of publications was filed with other answers which were to be dealt with later, and so was not immediately responded to, for which Harrison apologises. He also states that Dr Charles Chree's paper was not set up in type for last week's meeting so Harrison was unable to send a proof, but the abstract will soon be published.
Physical descriptionTypescript and manuscript - faded to illegibility in parts.
