TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor L Becker
Date14 November 1907
DescriptionProfessor Joseph Larmor has requested that Harrison ask Becker to review the enclosed leaf of his Eclipse paper and request that he either let the lines remain, with verbal modification, or substitute, if possible, an equal amount of alternative matter to occupy the place of the lines struck out on page 22. This will avoid the time and expense of removing matter in the middle of a difficult paper, which would necessitate the remaking of many following pages.
