In the absence of the Director of the Indian Institute of Science, who has returned to India, I have opened your letter of application for the Professorship of Electrical Technology. I understood from the Director before he left that the list of applications for the vacant Professorships was closed; but I will report your application with others which have come in lately.
I am, faithfully yours,
Robt [Robert] Harrison
Assistant Secretary R.S. [Royal Society]'.
