TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 January 1908
DescriptionHarrison encloses a letter from Dr Richard Tetley Glazebrook about Smith's paper, noting that as it appears to have arrived in the midst of arrangements for Lord Kelvin's funeral, Larmor may not have seen it. He has written to Glazebrook, and supposes that they should let them have advance proofs if they want them. It is now ready for Larmor to pass, and he encloses it for that purpose.

A letter from the Colonial Office regarding the Solar Research Union is enclosed, and he asks that Larmor return it with notes indicating how he wishes it to be dealt with. Also enclosed is a report of the Treasury Committee on National Physical Laboratory, which he presumes is for Council.
