TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor J M Thornton
Date20 July 1910
Description'Dear Sir,
In reply to your letter of yesterday, your paper is now going forward for printing with the emendations to which you have consented, and it will probably be published before the meeting of the British Association; but that must depend upon the amount of other matter we have ready to make up a number. In any case, however, I do not think the publication of the paper need affect your demonstration of experiments at the British Association meeting so long as there is no publication connected with it, especially if you refer at the time to the fact that the paper has just appeared or is about to appear in the Proceedings RS [of the Royal Society].'
