TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Forster Morley
Date14 January 1910
DescriptionThe Royal Society has received an urgent application for £100 a year for five years as the British contribution to an International yearly report on Chemical Constants, strongly subsidized by other countries. On pointing out the work of the International Catalogue, Harrison is informed on high authority that it is of no use for the purposes in view. The Council will no doubt want to be informed of the rights of this matter, so it should be put before Morley's Committee.
