TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to the Honourable Robert John Strutt FRS
Date21 December 1914
Description'At the meeting of the Physics and Chemistry Committee on the 3rd instant Mr A C G Agerton's paper "The analysis of gases after the passage of electric discharges" was recommended for the Proceedings subject to a report from you that the paper had been amended in accordance with your suggestions. I was not present at the meeting but understood that you took the paper away with you; and as it has not yet been returned I should be much obliged if you would send a line saying if you still have the paper. It is important that we should have a record here of the whereabouts of papers.'
