Date16 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison responds to Cunningham's submission of his report, of the collation made of the late Mr W Shank's tables of the "Number of Figures in the Reciprocal of a Prime", to explain that the Principal Secretaries have decided to print it in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. They have suggested that he add the dates of Mr Shanks's manuscript and of the German documents, and that the table of corrigenda at the end of the note not be printed in Proceedings but added to Shanks' manuscript by Cunningham.
