TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor John Scott Burdon Sanderson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 March 1897
DescriptionAt the direction of the Secretaries Harrison is sending Burdon Sanderson herewith the manuscript, photographs and drawings [not attached] illustrating Professor [Rubert William] Boyce's paper 'A Contribution to the Study of (I) some of the decussating Tracts of the Mid- and Inter-brain, and (2) of the Pyramidal system in the Mesencephalon and Bulb'.

Asks if Burdon Sanderson considers the drawings which the author has made in substitution for the photographs, as satisfactory. Encloses a report on the paper [not attached], a copy of the marked portion of which was sent to the author in order that he might carry out Burdon Sanderson's recommendations. The author has had the manuscript and drawings in his hands 'just' two years, hence the delay in publication.
