TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [George] Forbes, Fellow of the Royal Society, Kinnaird Cottage, Pitlochrie, N.B
Date20 June 1913
DescriptionRegrets that the work by Osborne Reynolds was sent to him under a misapprehension. The Royal Society does not have the paper or lecture by J Mackenzie, neither does it have the publications of the Minnesota Academy of Sciences. It does have the the Proceedings of the American Association. Mackenzie's lecture will be looked into further and he will be informed if there is any success in tracing it. It may have been printed or reported in the American journal 'Science', which the Society does have.
