TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor F [Frederick] T [Trouton] Trouton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 December 1908
Description'Dear PRofessor Trouton,
I am writing on behalf of Dr Larmor to point out that he made a slip yesterday in the Council in saying there were five vacancies on the National Physical Laboratory to be filled. There are in fact only four, and as your name was the last mentioned he hopes you will not mind if that is withdrawn from the minute. I should like to have an assurance from you on this question before communicating with the Laboratory.'
