TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society
Date10 June 1904
DescriptionHarrison sends an enclosure from Dublin addressed to the British Association, stating that Larmor may know one of the secretaries but that he cannot read the names.

He also discusses difficulties which have arisen from the provisional decison, pending Council resolution, about the obituary notices, in particular as they relate to the possible need to enlarge the page to match Proceedings of the Royal Society and the need to issue them again in volume form to those who have already received Proceedings. Harrison conveys his personal belief that the mode of issue approved by Council, but not yet carried out, would be preferable - to issue obituaries with a separate pagination as insets in Proceedings, and to bind them up into a volume at a suitable moment.
