|Title||Copy letter from Joseph Larmor to the Secretary, the Admiralty|
|Date||5 March 1912|
|Description||The President and Council of the Royal Society have considered the letter of Sir W Graham Greene of date February 1, 1912, suggesting a modification of the previous arrangement made by the Admiralty with the London County Council relating to the influence of the Council's generating station at Greenwich on the security of Greenwich Observatory, in view of a new proposal for increasing the output of that generating system. |
In reply Larmor states that the President and Council cannot consider it to yet be established that the proposed extension will not be detrimental to the Observatory and Larmor gives details of potential issues. On the whole the President and Council have come to the conclusion that it is not within their duty to take objection.
