Date23 July 1912
DescriptionRegarding the International Congress on Electrology and Radiology on which Rutherford send a minute a fortnight ago, Harrison should be glad to know whether he had an opportunity of gaining any further information from the Foreign delegates to the Royal Society's [250th Anniversary] celebrations. Subject to any such information, Sir Joseph Larmor suggests that the Government should be written to and advised that there appears to be no special reason for sending a delegate from England to the congress.
