|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir Joseph Thomson, O.M., PRS|
|Date||27 March 1916|
|Description||'Dear Sir Joseph,|
The enclosed from Professor Sampson should, I think, be handed to you without delay. In writing to Dr. Schuster this morning I have told him the essence of it, but has not Professor Sampson rather exaggerated the functions propsed for the new organization in advising the Government?
There are several letters this morning from champions of societies that consider themselves left out from the scheme of the Conjoint Board. With regard to these I imagine that there might be a stereotyped reply telling them that the Conference was only preliminary and that the question of the societies to be represented in the ultimate organization is one for consideration in preparing a working scheme.'
