TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor Silvanus P [Phillips] Thompson FRS
Date28 January 1913
Description'Professor Marchant, whose paper is down for reading on Thursday, has sent in a abstract more than double the length prescribed for use at the Meetings. I am not justified in printing this, but I have written to him that I will ask you if you are willing to cut it down to a short statement of the essential points of his paper. If you could do this and let me have it back before tomorrow afternoon, we would set it up for the Meeting; otherwise we shall have to do without a Meeting Abstract.'
