TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr William Napier Shaw, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date17 March 1911
DescriptionIn reply to Shaw's letter of yesterday the Gassiot Minutes of 15 June 1910 never got beyond the slip proof stage so far as the printers were concerned, but they were sent out approved in that form. The reason was that Harrison had to get pulls in a hurry for the members of the Meteorological Committee on a special occasion.

There was never any authorised arrangement that copies of the Gassiot Committee minutes should be supplied to all members of the Meteorological Committee as a practice, but Harrison presumes he should not be at liberty to send these Minutes to any but members of the Gassiot Committee without a special resolution. He will look up a complete set from December 1909 to date and send them to Shaw for his convenience, and will make a note to send duplicate copies in the future.
