TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Michael Foster, Secretary, Royal Society
Date15 February 1897
DescriptionThanks Foster for his letter and is acting upon it.

Has heard nothing yet from Dr Armstrong although he wrote to him on Saturday.

The enclosed letter from Sir William Flower [not attached] seems to clear up the Soane Museum difficulty, and Harrison supposes he may send the letter now to the Curator with a covering private note, saying that he has satisfied himself that the Council are acting in accordance with Sir Flower's wishes, or something to that effect, but Harrison will not deal with this until he sees Foster tomorrow.

Has just received the enclosed from 'H.E.A.' [not attached].
