TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H P Hollis, 79 Foyle Road, Blackheath
Date30 July 1906
DescriptionSent the copy of Burrad's memoir on receipt of Hollis' letter but waited to reply further until he had brought the general question of sending papers to the 'Observatory Magazine' before a higher authority. The number of papers which the editors would care for from the Society's publications are probably not numerous, and the judgement is that they may have them on application as cases arise. Presumes Hollis' application for Burrad's paper was personal, and has therefore kept Hollis' halfcrown.
