TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mr Parsons
Date26 July 1911
Description'In going through the Minutes of the Glass-workers Cataract Committee for the purpose of collecting the reports which the Committee last week decided to print, we find that at the meeting of the Committee on July 8 1910, "Dr E K Martin presented two reports of research work performed by him". "In the [first] absorption of ultra-violet rays by the media of the eye was estimated..." "In the second methods of fixation of leus capsules were described etc".
These reports do not appear to be among our papers. Would it not be well to have them printed with the other reports; if you have them, will you send copies of me for that purpose?"
