TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to W R Bousfield KC
Date13 January 1915
Description'In reading your letter of yesterday it strikes me that you may not have received a rather full memorandum upon your paper which was sent to Sir William Ramsay about a week ago, with a letter stating the Committee's formal decision. If you have not seen this memorandum you may wish to modify your request; but, if you still desire to withdraw your paper altogether, it is open to you to do so, on the condition created by a recent Standing Order that the paper itself or a certified copy must ultimately be deposited here to be preserved in the Archives.'
