TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Sir William Crookes OM, PRS
Date16 April 1915
Description'I am sorry to have given you the trouble of telegraphing; I fear I did not realise your note of Monday called for an answer. As you could not come, and there was nor any important business, the meeting o Officers was postponed. The only available members of the Glassworkers' Cataract Committee (three altogether) met at Sir William Abney's house to discuss a draft report which will be sent round to you: no other business was transacted beyond agreeing that further researches should be carried out into the pathological effect of heat rays.'
