TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, [Secretary, Royal Society]
Date29 May 1905
DescriptionHas read Larmor's memorandum on the Mackinnon Studentships and has been taking it for granted that the Council on 8 June would appoint the Committee required by the regulations, and that the Committee would report to the July Council, which would make the final decision. Last year the Council Meeting 16 June referred the applications to the committees of the Council, Biological and Physical, and Harrison assumes Larmor will do the same this year.

Encloses a letter and paper which came this morning [not enclosed]. Is not sending the stock answer requiring communication by a Fellow until Larmor has had an opportunity of seeing it.
