TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr W G Duffield
Date14 July 1914
DescriptionThe Council have ordered his paper on 'Effect of pressure upon arc spectra, no. 5, nickel' to be published in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. However, the paper is considered to be insufficiently prepared for the press, and will be retained in manuscript until the author's return to England. Several columns in the tables are left without figures or headings and should be filled in before the paper is sent to the printers. Certain other modifications are proposed regarding the tables.
