TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Joseph Larmor, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date25 October 1904
DescriptionHas Larmor's notes about the Zoological Society. There are two letters on file. The first is marked as being answered by Larmor, but not copies, and the second is not marked as answered, but is down as having been handed to him. This is likely the letter Chalmers Mitchell has referred, but Harrison has no means of knowing whether Larmor has answered it or not. Asks that the letter is returned to file.

Sending a note from Richard Tetley Glazebrook. Sir Archibald Geikie says it appears to be accurate, but he has made some amendments in Larmor's draft for a Council minute about the Antarctic Observations which Harrison is setting up for the meeting.

Harrison is having a report of the Seismic Committee [of the International Association] which Arthur Schuster sent, set up in type. Sending an uncorrected proof [no enclosures].
