TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to J H Parsons FRCS
Date23 March 1915
Description'Your note has reached me simultaneously with a draft report which Mr Hardy has sent up from Cambridge, and which, so far as I can see, purports to be a draft for the summary of the report of the Committee. I am sending it to the printers to get it set up and will send it out tomorrow morning. He talks about bringing up the full report on Thursday, from which I infer that he has been stirring up Hill and Hartridge for the final version of the paper you have seen.
I have heard nothing about summoning them to the meeting. I cannot act if people do not keep me informed; but I am writing now to W B Hardy to speak to them if they are to come.'
