TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mr Sclater
Date26 April 1912
Description'The President has asked me to acknowledge your reply to the invitation to the celebrations next July, and the letter which you have received from the President of the Turin Academy of Sciences. He asks me to point out, however, that he has been obliged to limit the delegates to one from each institution, so that the Turin Academy's nomination is redundant. If Lord Rayleigh does not accept their invitation to represent them we will let you know.'
