TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to E C Hoefling
Date6 July 1915
Description'In reply to your letter of yesterday I am afraid it would be outside the practice of any Fellow of the Royal Society to offer an opinion upon your method of estimating wind allowance for rifle fire; but if you believe it to be a practical simplification of existing methods I should suggest your submitting it direct to the War Office.'
