TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir Arthur Rucker, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date2 May 1908
Description'Dear Sir Arthur,
Might I call to your memory a matter of Sir M Foster's obituary notice. Prof[essor] Larmor is anxious that we should now get on with the publication of this with as little further delay as possible. Possibly you could make it convenient to finish your work on it in the course of a week or so, and let me know if we might expect the MS [Manuscript} back from you in about that time. I would then have it set up and you could if need to complete your work upon the printed proof, which would perhaps be a convenience and might save some time. Would you therefore kindly let me know if I may count on having the MS back very shortly for printing.'
