TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Schuster, Fellow of the Royal Society, Russell Hotel, Russell Square, W.C.
Date3 July 1906
DescriptionAt the last meeting of the Observatories Commitee, Schuster's name was added to a sub-Committee which for some time has been considering certain questions relating to the reduction of magnetic results obtained at Volaba Observatory.

The matter has mainly been in the hands of Dr [Charles] Chree and Sir John Eliot. The Committee has decided to have the documents printed and sent round and Chree has decided what is worth printing. Hears from Chree that Schuster is visiting town tomorrow and this will be his only chance to see the papers on the subject. Is sending herewith all the papers in his hands and asks for these to be returned once perused [not enclosed].
