|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Editor in Charge, New York Herald, 81 Fleet Street, E.C.
|16 January 1906
|Harrison suggests that the enquiry submitted by the Editor in charge of the New York Herald should be forwarded to those better placed to respond, namely the Decimal Association at Botolph House, Eastcheap. He notes that the Council of the Royal Society have always tried to refrain from making any pronouncements on the topic.
