TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Professor Silvanus Thompson FRS
Date9 March 1915
Description'I had your note this morning with the interim report and have sent it off to the printers but I fear it will be quite as much as we can do to get it sent off by tomorrow evening as our printers are not very rapid, and there is a good deal of it.
I have returned to the office today after nearly a month's absence I am sorry to say: I had a very severe attack of influenza which left me very weak and I am not very much yet: I fear you suffered in the same way and trust you have quite recovered.'
