TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr [Silvanus Phillips] Thompson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 November 1914
DescriptionProfessor Schuster went through Thompson's draft of decisions of the Catalogue Committee regarding the future method of carrying on the work, and he has asked that the draft be sent to Thompson with some verbal alterations which seemed to him to represent more what the committee intended. It is Harrison's recollection that the committee decidedly vetoed the employment of the staff looking up references for the correction of the proofs, deciding the director could do this.
