TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mrs [Hertha] Ayrton
Date13 February 1911
DescriptionBy Professor [John Henry] Poynting's request, Harrison is returning her paper on Oscillating Water for modification in accordance with the decision of the Committee of the Royal Society, which it is believed have already been sent to her.
