TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to A [Alfred] E [Edwin] H [Howard] Tutton FRS
Date28 May 1909
Description'Dear Mr Tutton,
I acknowledge your letter of Professor Larmor and will send it on to him, but your paper has not yet been received, and no arrangements can be finally made about any paper until it is in the House.
It is not in accordance with the usual practice to have any paper read on the day on the Croonian lecture, but I see that it did happen six years ago, so it is not entirely without precedent; but there is usually very little time left after the lecture.'
