TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Captain T [Thomas] H [Henry] Tizard FRS
Date8 April 1913
Description'I am directed by the Chairman of the Sectional Committee for Geology to send for your information the enclosed copies of two referees' reports on a paper by Mr W K Spencer, which the Chairman thinks might proceed to publication in the Philosophical Transactions without a meeting of the Committee. I have to point out that the paper is a heavy one - estimated to cost £60 for printing and nearly £40 for illustration. In January 1912, before the paper was communicated to the Society, the Council voted £25 from the Government Publication Grant towards the cost of publication of a paper on this subject by Mr Spencer. This grant has not been drawn upon.'
