TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [Arthur] Schuster, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date4 May 1914
DescriptionSending a letter from Professor Bragg apparently in reply to one Schuster has written directly to him about the Pawlow paper. At present that it standing awaiting the Committee, with Dr Lees' concurrence. A meeting has been suggested for midday the day after the Soiree. It is the only time on that day which it could be fitted in, but it will be difficult to find any room clear enough for holding a meeting.

Sending herewith the enclosed from Professor Hill [no enclosures]. Does not know what justification he has for inferring that Schuster does not propose to take any steps about the wording of Section 40. Harrison has never told him so, but rather understood that Schuster saw no objection to his proposals. As this is the only thing now standing in the way of the reports being printed off, Harrison would be glad to have it back soon.
