TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Sir William Christie, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 March 1906
DescriptionLarmor states that the letter relating to Charles Chree's drafting of the Indian magnetic report was sent to him to provide directions for redrafting from Christie's Committee, but it was left on the train as he travelled to the Royal Society last week.

He states that the letters were unofficial, and Sir John Eliot's address on 28 March was 79 Alleyn Park, Dulwich. Larmor suggests that Eliot would willingly call on Christie and refresh his memory of the circumstances if Christie made an appointment, especially as he also has to sign the report.
