TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Dr Arthur Schuster
Date18 May 1915
Description'There is a letter this morning from the Board of Agriculture enclosing a proposal from France relating to the directorate of the International Geodetic Bureau. I do not send it on for fear of missing you, as I do not know your movements with certainty.
There are no more applications so far for the Drugs committee, and if none come in in the course of the day I shall send out a card to the committee to say no.'
