TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to A [Alan] A [Archibald] Campbell Swinton
Date2 February 1909
Description'Dear Mr Swinton,
I have just heard from Mr Gerald Stoney that a notice of reading for February 4th which was intended for you has been received by him in error for a similar notice with reference to a paper by himself which is also down for reading on that day. I am afraid that some inconvenience may have been caused you by this mistake, and I write at once to let you know that your paper on the 'Conversion of diamond into coke' is down for reading on Thursday, February 4th.'
