TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], President, Royal Society
Date5 October 1906
DescriptionIn reply to Rayleigh's note of the previous day, nothing seems to have happened about the radium since the Society wrote to Armet de Lille [Lisle] in July asking him to forward the whole of the products together in one consignment. If Rayleigh would like Harrison will write for an update and he will in the meantime write to Professor Liveing to ask if he has any news. Queries if the products were to be dried before despatch as he cannot find that de Lille was given final instructions on that point.
