TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Editor, Nature
Date7 June 1904
DescriptionFurther to his telegram of the previous day, he sends a copy of Proceedings of the International Association of Academies at its Plenary Meeting on 25 May and the Proceedings of the Section of Science the following day. They cannot make the complete protocol yet as they are still to receive the Proceedings of the Section of Letters, but Harrison states that the Proceedings of the last day of the General Assembly consisted of receiving Resolutions of the Sections of Science and of Letters, and complimentary resolutions with regard to the President of the Meeting and of the Royal Society.

He has struck out that which he believes is superfluous to the publication of Nature, such as foreign translations of the Resolutions and the details of discussions.
