TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Sir George Darwin, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date17 May 1906
DescriptionLarmor informs Darwin that the Council of the Royal Society, at the meeting that day, agreed to contribute £350 from a private fund of the Society, towards supporting the work of the South African geodetic arc. The opinion that this ought to also be supported by the Government, rather than relying on the limited resources of private scientific societies, was expressed strongly in discussions.
