TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor F [Francis] W [Wall] Oliver FRS
Date27 May 1910
Description'Dear Prof Oliver.
Would you oblige us by revising the English and editing this abstract for Prof Kleb's lecture so that it may be somewhat more suitable for circulating to the Fellows next week in the usual manner.
As it stands it is overlong for these weekly summaries, so if you could also see you way, without undue sacrifices, to out it down by a third or so, that would also be an improvement from our point of view. I should be greatly obliged if you could let me have it back by Monday morning, as we want to circulate by Monday night's post.'
