TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Rubert Boyce, Ashton Hall, Bacteriological Laboratories, University College, Liverpool
Date29 January 1897
DescriptionHarrison apologises for continuing a correspondence on Boyce's paper, which has been in his hands for almost two years, but seeks to remind him that in his letter of 7 January he sought to retain it for a week to complete the drawings, but has now had it for three weeks. Harrison also reiterates, in response to references in his note to a continuance of his experimental work, that the paper was only returned to Boyce in March 1895 to complete the drawings, and there was no question of it being amplified or extended as this would be contrary to the Society's regulations.
