TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor John Wesley Judd, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 December 1896
DescriptionProfessor Michael Foster has handed Harrison the letters from Judd of 11th and 15th December, and has authorised him to accept Judd's offer to supervise the creation of a series of samples from the Royal Society's set of borings from the Nile Delta for the use of Captain Lyons. Harrison assumes he would like this done at Kensington, and if so, will arrange for the bottles of samples to be sent to him. He notes that they are bulky, occupying two shelves in the instrument room, so he will arrange for their delivery in a van once he has heard from Judd regarding when would be convenient to receive them.
