TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society
Date8 December 1905
DescriptionQueries if it could not save the time occupied in reading the minutes of the Society's previous meeting if they have them printed promptly and circulated in between the two meetings. The circulation might be limited to the post card list, in which case the postage would not amount to very much, and it would have the advantage of prompt notification of papers read. It might also contain the list of papers accounted to be read, in which case it could supplement the present post card issued, and would then add nothing to the postage expenses. Asks what Larmor thinks.
