TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr R [Richard] T [Tetley] Glazebrook CB, FRS
Date4 July 1911
Description'With reference to your request for those copies of Prof Watson's paper on the visibility of coloured lights, I am in doubt as to what paper you are referring to.
A "Note on the sensibility of the eye to variations of wave-length" by Prof Watson, was read last Thursday: & if this is the paper you want copies of. I shall be glad to know whether you wish for pulls of the proofs, or whether you will want for you copies until the paper is printed off. If the letter, the author would be the proper person to apply to.'
