TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Thomas Mather, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 June 1907
DescriptionHarrison suggests that Mather's abstract, received that morning, is too long to have set in type for Thursday, let alone for it to be circulated beforehand. If he can supply a short summary of results with a brief introductory paragraph, not to exceed two printed octavo pages, it may be set up and sent to any Fellows he names. The original abstract will be retained for their more detailed consideration regarding publication.
