TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Francis Galton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 February 1897
Description'My dear Sir,
I have received a letter from Mr. Francis Darwin, of Cambridge, requesting me to summon Mr [William Turner] Thiselton Dyer to your Plants and Animals Committee on Thursday. As I do not like to act in such a matter except on the authority of the Chairman, I enclose a duly addressed notice [not attached], so that if you approve of Mr Darwin's suggestion you may send it on direct and insert in the envelope a copy of your printed circular, of which I have none left. Will you also kindly let me know whether Mr Dyer is definitely to be added to the Committee?
I am, yours faithfully,
Robt Harrison
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
