TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Major D Harvey
Date15 July 1914
DescriptionHis letter which was received this morning will receive due consideration. In the meantime Harrison would like to know what course Harvey actually desires the Royal Society to take with regard to what he considers 'a grave injustice' inflicted upon him by the omission of his name from the titles of certain papers published in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. The papers are published and cannot be recalled, and he can't hardly expect the Society to republish them with an altered title. Shall be glad to know what he has in mind.
