TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [Ernest] Rutherford, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date9 July 1912
DescriptionA letter has come from the Board of Trade [regarding the International Congress of Electrology], and as there will not be a meeting of Council for quite some time, Rutherford is requested to minute his advice upon the matter so that action may be taken at once. Asks if he thinks it would be better to delay a reply until there has been an opportunity of consulting privately Professors Lippmann, Waldeyer, Voight and Exner when they are over here next week. This reference has been sent in similar terms to Sir Joseph John Thomson.
