TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Henry Frederick Baker, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 April 1904
DescriptionHarrison refers to a paper, received December 1903, by Rev F H Jackson submitted for consideration for Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. He notes that both referees have returned reports adverse to publication, but that one suggests it may be suitable for Proceedings of the Royal Society in a condensed form of up to five pages. Harrison has been directed to send Baker the paper, together with a second part subsequently communicated by Professor Burnside, to ask that he advise the secretaries whether an abstract should appear in Proceedings and to what degree it should be condensed.
