TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Joseph Larmor, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date7 October 1912
DescriptionConcerning the telegram from Professor Coleman returned by Larmor, Harrison forgot to say that Larmor's instruction about the address to the Rice Institute had been carried out. Nothing was heard from Coleman, and so Professor Brown was contacted, telling him he had been elected by the Royal Society to be its representative at the ceremony. There has been no response, but it seems he has already consented to serve. Asks if Coleman needs to be informed, as he mentions in his telegram that he is happy to serve unless there are other arrangements.
