TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Arthur Robertson] Cushny, FRS
Date7 June 1917
DescriptionInforms Professor [Arthur Robertson] Cusny that he [Frederick Harrison] is responsible for drawing up the Minutes of Council, submitting them to the President and Secretaries, and sending them to the printers. With regards to the minutes Professor Cushny questioned, notes it is true that the Council adopted the report of the Committee as a statement for distribution to the Fellows, but that the form of the earlier part of the Minute conveys a more general approval of the arguments made in the report than was expressed by the Council.
