TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to Sir Richard Quain, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date13 May [1897]
DescriptionThe drawings of python and kangaroo heat are most excellent but the opinion is that they are not necessary for the paper so Foster hopes Quain will not object to their being omitted. The figure of experiment goes in. Asks if there is any particular Thursday on which Quain would wish the paper to be read.
