TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Joseph Larmor, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 June 1904
DescriptionHarrison refers to a letter from Peter Chalmers Mitchell, which Larmor has answered, in which he mentions the Zoological Record Committee having appointed a committee of his Society to confer with the Royal Society Committee. He is writing to Mitchell to enquire about who is on the Record Committee, noting the Royal Society representatives for the joint committee as Mr Bateson, Mr Boulenger, Sir Michael Foster, Sir Archibald Geikie, and, Harrison assumes, Larmor himself.

In reply to Larmor's telegram of that morning, Harrison notes that Mrs Ayrton's paper was sent to Professor Lamb on Wednesday, having waited a day for an abstract which did not arrive, and it should have arrived with him the previous day.
