TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Sir David Prain CMG, FRS
Date9 February 1915
Description'I have been tardy in sending the enclose draft of the Minutes of the Indian Government Advisory Committee, but many occupations have compelled me to postpone it. Now, however, as Council meetings are coming on it ought to be settled for presentation to Council, and I shall be much obliged if you will look through the draft and return it to me with your approval or any corrections which you think necessary.
There was a talk of sending round the report to the members of the Committee before sending it in. Do you still think that necessary? If so, I will put it in hand at once.'
