TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Crookes, President of the Royal Society
Date27 July 1914
DescriptionThanks him for returning the copy of his letter to Asquith and the final proofs of Crooke's paper. Has sent the latter to press. Harrison has also succeeded in recovering the errant letter which he shall be able to now amend, if necessary, and send in due course with its enclosures.

Hesitated whether to send on the enclosed calm request [no enclosures], as it seemed such an impertinence, but it was addressed to him as President, so it is being sent for him to deal with or destroy as he thinks best.
