TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Ashwell Shenstone, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 May 1906
DescriptionHarrison has been handed Shenstone's card to Dr Joseph Larmor, and he explains that, although the paper he communicated from Mr Gifford was received and apparently had the usual acknowledgement, it seems possible that, having arrived on the day of the Soiree and having been transmitted to Larmor personally, a formal acknowledgement may have been overlooked. He apologises if this is the case.

The paper is now with a referee, who is in direct communication with the author.
