TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor Larmor, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date2 March 1908
Description'Paper on "Refractive index and dispersion of light in argon and helium" by W Burton.
Mr Cuthbertson's letter is enclosed. I feel uncertain whether we are justified in letting him publicly quote from a paper before it is published. I have sent him the meeting room abstract of Burtn's paper, which he could have got in any case but have told him that on the question of publication I must take counsel. In any case I have suggested to him the author's consent would seem necessary.'
