TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Louis Vessot] King
Date6 July 1917
DescriptionRefers to Professor [Louis Vessot] King's paper, 'The propagation of sound in the free atmosphere'. Explains that it has been under the consideration of a Committee, who have decided to recommend it for publication, however, that there may be a delay in this owing to the war. Notes that the Society have not yet received a letter from Professor [Ernest William] Barnes formally communicating the paper, and asks Professor King if he could get in touch with Professor Barnes to set this matter straight.
