TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Sir Joseph Larmor, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date5 November 1910
DescriptionSending herewith a short paper by G P Butler on 'The Spectrum of Halley's Comet', and G W Walker's reply to Lamor's letter [no enclosures]. Professor [William Mitchinson] Hicks has returned Hatfield's paper which has been modified to meet the criticisms of the referee. Hicks also reports favourably on Dr Havelock's paper, but Dr Arthur Schuster will not be back in the country in time to be second referee, so Larmor will have to give further instructions.
