TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Pearson[?]
Date22 June 1906
DescriptionPearson[?] wished to amend the manuscript of his paper, which is enclosed herewith [not enclosed], asks that he does so in pencil or red ink. Forgot to ask whether the many voluminous publications[?] by van der Waals and other Dutchmen in recent years on critical phenomena should not be consulted and referred to in writing on the subject. The observations by Torrey don't seem to add anything substantial to Pearsons. The paper is also enclosed for Pearson's opinion, to help the Committee [not enclosed].
