TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr D [Dukinfield] H [Henry] Scott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 March 1908
DescriptionPaper by Dr W J Russell "On the action of resin and allied bodies on a photographic plate in the dark". Professor Larmor would be glad of Dr Scott's advice as to whether the enclosed paper should be published in the Proceedings [of the Royal Society] and what modifications may be desireable. The paper is estimated to be 12 pages of Proceedings at a cost of £7 and the 14 figures to make 4 plates at a cost of £20. If passed it is probable that the author will be prepared to bear a portion of the cost.
