TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to the Principal of the Sir John Cass Technical Institute; Jewry Street, Aldgate, E.C.
Date26 February 1917
DescriptionInforms the Principal that, while the reseach on the settlement of slimes is important, the subject is expensive and the grant that the Sir John Cass Technical Institute asked for would be in adequate for a series attempt on the subject. With regard to the proposed investigation on the effect of low temperature annealing on cold-worked metals, notes that this subject has been investigated extensively already.
