TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr W [William] N [Napier] Shaw FRS
Date6 July 1910
Description'Dear Dr Shaw,
I have received messages passing through two or three hands asking for copies of the Minutes of the Gassiot Committee to be sent to you to-day, presumably for the use of the Meteorological Committee. I therefore send you three copies of the proof now in my hands of the minute of the last Meeting, which will suffice for yourself and the other two members of the Gassiot Committee who are on your Committee. Even if I had more available I should, I suppose, hardly be justified in sending Minutes, which are still in draft to any but members of the Committee. If you use them I hope you will make it clear that they are still in draft stage.'
