TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr W [William] N [Napier] Shaw, FRS
Date12 April 1911
DescriptionHarrison is now in a position to send Shaw a further answer to his letters if the 16th and 20th of March, partly answered by the despatch of a complete set of the Minutes of the Gassiot Committee from the beginning of its meetings.
There is not record of the question of sending the Minutes of the Gassiot Committee to every member of the Meteorological Committee having ever been raised. Harrison has, however, obtained the authority if the President to send Shaw after each meeting a sufficient number of copies of the Minutes of the Gassiot Committee to go around the Meteorological Committee, unless there should be any special reason against it.
