TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Hugh Longbourne Callendar, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 May 1906
DescriptionHarrison encloses a copy of Mr Searle's report on Professor E Wilson's paper "On the self-induction of an iron cylinder', and asks if Callendar, as Chairman, can minute his opinion regarding acceptance and printing for Proceedings of the Royal Society. He also states that Dr Shaw, the original referee for 'Barometric variations of long duration over large areas' by Dr Lockyer, is unable to report on it, and so it was been sent on to Charles Thomson Rees Wilson.
