TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sidney Frederic Harmer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 November 1909
DescriptionA paper has been communicated by Dr [Arthur Everett] Shipley. The paper is rather big and will be expensive. Dr John Rose Bradford has looked at it and, while he thinks it is a valuable paper, it does not seem to be of the character suitable for 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. If Harmer agrees, Bradford would be inclined to write to the communicator suggesting withdrawal of the paper with a view to its being presented to one of the more specialized Societies.
