TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to F [Francis] H [Henry] Neville, MA, FRS
Date14 October 1911
Description'Sir Joseph Larmor has sent on your letter to me, and asks me to forward to you for consideration and report the paper by Sir R A Hadfield FRS, on "Sinhalese iron and steel of ancient origin", on the ground that in his opinion you can give the most judicious advice to the Council about it.
Would you also be good enough to let us know whether in your opinion the paper is suitable for either the "Philosophical Transactions" of the "Proceedings [of the Royal Society". I enclose two forms of report, so that you can use whichever you think best.'
