TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to R Whiddington, St John's College, Cambridge
Date7 May 1912
Description'We regret the misprint in your paper. It is however correct by copy. We have shown it to Sir Joseph Larmor, whose comment is "of no importance. I gather it merely means that B is negative".
There seems to us no need to send you a second proof. You said "if you think it necessary".'
