TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to E. H. Nicholls Esq., Meteorological Office
Date8 April 1916
Description'Dear Sir,
Your paper "Ivestigation of atmospheric electrical vaiartions at sunrise and sunset" has been under consideration, and I am directed to say that the Committee, to which it has been referred, will probably recommend it for publication. I am, however, to point out that in the opinions of the Secretaries the introductory paragraphs give a misleading impression as to the real puport of the paper, and I am to suggest to you the desirability of modifying it as marked in pencil.'
