TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], President, Royal Society
Date19 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison has sent off proof of the first instalment of Strutt's Anniversary Address, having omitted from the draft Council's report the section concerning the National Physical Laboratory which he includes in his Address. He asks if Strutt intends to incorporate other sections of that report as he would need to take them out of the Council's report, which should be going to press now.

If he is going to refer to matters reported upon by Council, Strutt should say something in recognition of the work of Professor Church in indexing archived papers at the Royal Society and should enlarge upon the urgent need for room for the expansion of the Library, which it is impossible to maintain in an organised state given the current restraints upon shelf space.
