TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date19 September 1896
DescriptionHarrison sends the uncorrected proof of the complete verbatim report of the Catalogue Conference [not attached]. Dr Armstrong has requested that these shall be sent round at once to all delegates who spoke and Harrison shall be glad to know if Foster has anything to say upon it before this is done.

The report as a whole probably wants careful editing, but no one who was not present during the whole of the Conference is competent to do this, and Harrison supposes that responsibility for it will rest with Dr Armstrong who is starting for Frankfurt today.
