TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to T Mather, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 March 1908
Description'Dear Mr Mather,
The short note on the EMFs of the normal cadmium cell and the normal clark cell, sent by you on Friday last was duly received. Professor Larmor, who has seen the note thinks that it should be treated as an appendix to your previous paper on the Board of Trade Ampere-Standard Balance, and not as a separate communication; he has therefore marked it for setting up as a dated appendix at the end of the first paper. As you will see from the postcard announcement Professor Larmor has also condensed the title of the two papers into the following, viz.- "Note on the values of this Board of Trade standards of current and electromotive force".'
