TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor J [John] B [Bretland] Farmer FRS
Date13 October 1911
Description'We have received the enclosed letter and it has been suggested to me that you would probably be good enough to tell me whether there is anything sufficiently novel or of scientific importance in the phenomenon described to merit serious notice. If there is, it may interest you to put yourself in communication with the writer of the letter; but if not, I can choke her off with a dry official answer.'
