TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Professor [Micaiah John Muller] Hill, FRS; 18 Ferncroft Avenue, Hampstead, N.W.
Date13 August 1917
DescriptionSuggests there has been a misunderstanding with regards to the binding of Professor [Micaiah John Muller] Hill's two volumes of the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Explains that some years ago the separate paper issue was made the official publication of the Transactions, and Fellows were notified that, unless they expressed a preference for the bound volumes, they would be sent separate papers. Asks Professor Hill to send in a request to have his Transactions sent in volume form in order that this be passed onto the printers and the matter be set straight.
