TitleCopy letter from A H White, to Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society
Date9 August 1912
DescriptionThe only thing to report is that Sir Joseph Larmor was in on Tuesday, but has now gone to Cambridge permanently. He asked to see the addresses, and he had a good look over them. He suggested dealing with them straight away by getting Cockerell to take them all except the handsomer flat ones. This upset all Miss Mackie's careful sorting and arrangement. Sir Archibald Geikie says there is no hurry. They are now packed and tied up in the nine large brown paper parcels.
