TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr W [William] N [Napier] Shaw FRS
Date6 March 1913
Description'In drafter the minutes of the Gassiot Committee I found a note in my book indicating that the letter from Dr Walker (G.T.) about the Barometric units, which I was instructed to send round to the Committee asking for their views upon it, was to be accompanied by a memorandum, presumably from your hand. My recollection is that you desired to circulate with it a statement of the present situation of affairs in the matter of these units. If I am right in this I shall be glad to have you memorandum soon, so that I may get the documents sent out.'
