TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Principal E H Griffiths
Date21 April 1910
Description'My dear Griffiths,
I am reminded that T G Bedford's paper is hung up awaiting more information about his thermometry, with a view to reconciling your earlier observations with his late ones - which are so discrepant as to cancel the confidence in the work as settlement of points in dispute.
Whetham tells me that he would rather reduce the first 40 pages to half their bulk than put them into small print, as suggested by the Committee.'
