TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir W [William Henry Maloney] Christie KCB, FRS
Date4 October 1910
Description'Dear Sir William,
As notified to the Members of the Committee a little time ago, a meeting of the Observatories Committee is required to make a recommendation to the Government about a vacancy at Kadaikanal Observatory, and for other business. After enquiries of various members the date that seems most generally convenient for a meeting is Thursday, October 20, and Sir Joseph Larmor suggests that we summon the Committee for that date at ".30 if you raise no objection. Will you send me one line on a post card to say if you agree.'
