TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir John Wolfe Wolfe-Barry, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date12 November 1906
DescriptionDr [Joseph] Larmor handed Harrison Wolfe-Barry's letter of 8 November about the radium and Harrison has been in communication with the President on the matter. The President has asked him to draw up a statement on the subject, which the President will no doubt forward to the Goldsmiths' Company. The statement will necessarily be negative as far as any results are concerned as there has been the greatest difficulty in obtaining any radium with which to experiment and a limited supply which is being reduced in Paris for the Society has not yet been delivered.
