TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Schuster, Chairman of the Physics and Chemistry Sectional Committee
Date10 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison communciates the views of the two referees, Professor Henry Alexander Miers and Professor James Walker, for a paper by Dr W Beher, 'On the Polymorphic changes of ammonium nitrate', communicated by Professor Arthur Schuster. Both referees' report that it requires editing prior to publication in Proceedings of the Royal Society, with Miers detailing places where the manuscript is incomplete or incorrect, and Walker listing inessential illustrations that Professor Joseph Larmor proposes be omitted.

The paper is sent to Shuster, at Larmor's direction, so that necessary editing may be carried out before they proceed to printing.
