TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Captain Henry George Lyons, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 December 1909
DescriptionHarrison thanks Lyons for his note about the publications of the Egyptian Survey Department, but there is already an abundance of meteorological observations, and he does not think the Committee would welcome an additional set. The Cairo Scientific Journal is a different matter, and it would be welcomed.
