TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Charles Chree, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 June 1913
DescriptionThanks him for his letter, and is sorry for all the bother he must be having with all the disturbances at Kew. Regarding the minutes of the Magnetic Sub-Committee, if Harrison is to be held responsible for producing them at meetings, he would be glad if Chree would send them when approved so he can get them printed. The question of the previous minutes will be looked into. It would be better to have a Minute Book with all the minutes stuck in, like the other committees.

Professor [Arthur] Schuster will be spoken to about Mr Wright and Dr Simpson. He had the letter from from Wright, and Harrison is under the impression they are both in communication. The whole question of the publication of the Antarctic results seems to be rather in risk of suffering from too many authorities, but Schuster is the safest court of appeal on that subject, and Harrison will pass on what Chree says.

Fancies the letter to Dr Bauer was an invitation to the Soiree, but he has escaped that.
