TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Leonard Hill, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison, following a note from Dr Bulloch, explains that Dr Keith is too ill to attend the meeting but hopes for some exposition of his paper. He asks whether Hill will take on this task, as it is the usual practice of the Royal Society that this should fall to a paper's communicator in the absence of the author. Keith had asked Bulloch to take on the duty, but as this would be unusual, he asks that Hill do it unless he wishes to hand this task to Bulloch.
