TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor G [George] E [Ellery] Hale
Date3 December 1908
Description'My dear Sir,
I presume you have had from Dr Larmor some acknowledgement of the large negatives of sun spots which you were good enough to send here some weeks ago, and which were exhibited to the Society at one of their meetings.
I now have no acknowledge the safe receipt of a box containing a smaller negative of spectra, addressed to Dr Larmor, to whom I am writing on the subject. You will be glad to know at once of its safe arrival.'
