TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Arthur] Schuster, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date13 July 1917
DescriptionNotes that the doubt about the Memorandum prepared for the Prime Minister [unspecified] has still not been cleared up. The only Memorandum that can be found is the long letter written to the Prime Minister, printed in the Council Minutes. Suggests sending on a copy of this letter as soon as possible. Also expresses concern over the outstanding chemists cases. Notes that he has received correspondence from Professor Arthur Schuster, the President [Joseph John Thomson], Mr. [Richard] Threllfall and Dr. [Henry John Horstman] Fenton, all of which express a majority vote. Asks Professor Schuster if he can act on this majority opinion, rather than submit the cases to the whole Committee.
