TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary
Date5 May 1906
DescriptionHarrison sends a typed copy of Larmor's draft letter concerning the South African Arc, and lists the items he had received that morning as a letter to Dr Charles Chree for copying, a proof memorandum on Mathematical printing, and a memorandum relating to Sir George Darwin.

He has not yet traced any action by the Royal Society in the appointment of British representation on the Treasurer's Bureau. Harrison remarks that the Society evidently does not nominate directly, but he will search further as the nomination has taken place since he has worked at the Society, beginning 10 years ago.
