TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Rubert William Boyce, [Fellow of the Royal Society], University College, Liverpool
Date22 July 1896
DescriptionHarrison finds that there is a matter outstanding between Boyce and the Society relating to a paper on the 'Decussating Tracts of the Mid and Interbrain'. which Boyce contributed to the Society in June 1894 and was voted for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'.

The manuscript of the paper and the photographs illustrating it were returned to Boyce in March 1895 to enable him to prepare drawings to illustrate the text but neither the manuscript or photographs have yet been returned although they have formed the subject of a considerable correspondence between Harrison's predecessor Mr Rix and Boyce.

Harrison will be much obliged by Boyce returning the manuscript of his paper and the drawings.
