TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Augustus Edward Howe Love, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 December 1903
DescriptionHarrison explains that a difficulty has arisen because a meeting of Love's Committee on 14 January at 3 o'clock is at the same time as a meeting of the Catalogue of Scientific Papers Committee. The latter of these will need to be attended by both Harrison and Joseph Larmor, and the former by at least one of them, therefore he asks that Love change the time of his meeting or release Harrison and Larmor from the obligation to attend.

Harrison has also received the reports on [Karl] Pearson's paper, but Love does not state whether any action is to be taken. He asks whether it is to progress under Standing Order 43.
