TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Professor Silvanus Phillips Thompson FRS
Date10 September 1915
Description'I hear you have been talking of a meeting of the Catalogue Committee. I do not think it much use trying to get one together before October; but, in the meantime, I send you a copy of the resolution of Cornwall passed at their last meeting, from which you will see that they were content to leave matter in statn quo until they received a report from your Committee at the end of October. If there is anything more urgent, you will, no doubt, let me know.'
