TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date21 July 1896
DescriptionHarrison asks Lankester for a full statement of the claims he wishes to put forward on behalf of Professor [Giovanni Battista] Grassi for the Darwin medal. After the receipt of Lankester's letter Harrison found in the 'Zoologisches Adressbuch' a mention on him, of which Harrison encloses a copy [not attached]. If this is the Grassi Lanekster proposes, Harrison presumes they may take the name there given as correct.
