TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to David Gill, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date5 May 1904
DescriptionLarmor informs Gill that the President of the Royal Society has agreed to the revival of his Committee, with Major E H Hills added, and that it is Gill's responsibility to arrange the meeting and write the agenda. He states that the only way to raise the subject [with the International Association] without the statutory three months notice is as a "Report presented by the Royal Society on the African Geodetic Arc" which will be added to their agenda. Such resolution as Gill supports can be made at the next Council meeting on 19 May.
