TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Alfred Bray Kempe, Treasurer of the Royal Society
Date5 February 1907
DescriptionDr Joseph Larmor has written to Sir Archibald Geikie suggesting the 20 or 27 February for the meeting of the Catalogue of Scientific Papers, which 'he hopes will be purely formal'!

Sending the two statements, now complete to date, of the expenses of published numbers 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' and 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' beginning 1905-06 [no enclosures]. They will see that both in volumes some of the numbers appearing at the beginning of the earlier period must be regarded as coming under the extraordinary expenditure for which a grant was made from the Donation Fund. Hopes this furnishes what he wanted, and if so, Harrison will keep the sheets going if he will send them back to Harrison as a copy.
