TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr [Alfred] Fowler, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 November 1914
DescriptionSchuster agrees that it is not worthwhile at present to take steps for convening a joint meeting of the two Socieities as prescribed by the 1889 procedure for the Eclipse Reports. The case should be brought before the two Councils, so presumably Fowler will take charge of reporting it to the Royal Astronomical Society.
