TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edward Albert Sharpey-Schafer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 March 1897
DescriptionHas two outstanding matters for Schafer: the draft minutes of his last meeting sent for approval some time ago, and the question of Professor Vaughan Harley's paper 'On the Breaking-up of Fat, &c' which was referred to Schafer by [Michael] Foster on the 19th, and which is awaiting Schafer's decision as to both acceptance and printing.

Shall also be glad to know what Schafer proposes as to a meeting of the Physiology Committee. The second Thursday in April is a Council Day; the following one is the day before Good Friday. Does not think there are any new physiological papers for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]', but there are at least two out with referees.
