TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Dobinson Halliburton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 September 1904
DescriptionThe [Jagadis Chunder] Bose paper saga continues. In Harrison's absence Sir Archibald Geikie, who was not acquainted with the history of the paper, sent it to Harry Marshall Ward but in as much as his Committee had declined to adjudicate on the paper previously he has considered that no action could be taken on his letter. Sending some documents [no enclosures], and will be glad to hear of what action Halliburton considers to take. The Abstract of Bose's paper, revised by Professor Joseph Larmor and approved by Halliburton, has been held over for the present.
