TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Willliam Wilfrid Webb, Army Medical School, Royal Victoria Hospital, Netley
Date16 October 1896
DescriptionIn reply to Webb's letter of yesterday, Harrison is always glad to furnish relatives or others interested in a deceased Fellow, such information as is readily accessible from the ordinary Register of the Society. However his time is very occupied to allow him to collect complete materials for authors who are commissioned to write articles.

The enquiries Webb made with regard to R D Thomson and A Tweddie will involve a considerable amount of search, which he does not have time to undertake, and the only course he can suggest is to apply to Council for permission to consult the records himself.
