TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Frederick Frost Blackman, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 February 1911
DescriptionThe abstract he provided of his paper very considerably exceeds the length prescribed for abstracts. By the time Harrison spotted the problem, he was tasked with choosing whether to not setting it up at all for the meeting, or abbreviating it himself. He chose the latter option and left out some paragraphs. Hopes Blackman will agree that the parts omitted were just detail.
