TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir Robert Hadfield FRS
Date9 November 1911
DescriptionHarrison is writing on Hadfield's convenience to get on with the publication of his paper on "Sinhalese from steel of ancient origin". Harrison believes that Sir Joseph Larmor and Hadfield arranged that two sections of the big paper will be taken for publication in the Royal Society's Proceedings. Harrison also believes that Hadfield is willing to provide an introduction to the two sections.
With regard to illustrations, Harrison believes that Hadfield agreed to the Royal Society reproducing six, and rely on Hadfield to select those required. Harrison suggests that Hadfield could find some time to look in and discuss the matter.
