TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir James Dewar FRS
Date22 April 1912
Description'I duly received your note with the paper or papers by Dr Wahl, but before registering them I should like to consult you as to whether they are to regarded as one paper or as three separate papers. Internal evidence seems to indicate the former course, but in that case should they not have a general title such a "Optical measurements at high pressures" and calling Section I. The Apparatus, leaving Sections II and III for the diagrams of state ! and II respectively? If you agree to this way of treating the titles I will register the paper accordingly, but if you wish to have them taken as three separate papers, the titles of II and III will, I suppose, have to be somewhat more explicit.'
