TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Richard Tetley Glazebrook, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 December 1909
DescriptionHarrison had Glazebrook's letter yesterday morning, and he believes Sir Joseph Larmor wrote to him on the matter [NLB/41/479]. The objection to the figure which has been given in the draft letter to the Treasury was anticipated by the Royal Society having already taken that figure out altogether and substituted a general expression of 'a substantial surplus'. The difference between Glazebrook's figures and the Royal Society's is very simply explained.
