TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Blamey Stevens, 422 Lippincott Avenue, Riverton, NJ, USA
Date15 March 1912
Description'I am in receipt of your letter of the 1st instant enclosing a paper on "Volcanic energy". The rules of the Society preclude the acceptance of any paper unless it be communicated by a Fellow of the Society; but in view of your distance from England and possible difficulty of coming into contact with Fellows or Foreign Members of the Society, I will not return the paper to you at once in case a Fellow who sees it may be inclined to adopt it for communication. If that does not happen shortly I will return the paper to you.'
