TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor M J M Hill FRS
Date18 March 1912
Description'Your letter to Sir Joseph Larmor, who is not in town, has come into my hands and I write at once, before there can be time for him to reply to you, to say that there is no Standing Order to prevent your letter being taken as notice to call attention to the method of balloting for candidates in Council, but that if you have a definite proposition to make it would be in accordance with the practice of Council to formulate it and send it round before the meeting at which it is to be discussed. This could be done if you are content to give notice at next Thursday's meeting of the motion which you would move at a subsequent meeting.'
