TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 December 1896
DescriptionHarrison apologises for the delay in responding to Lankester's request for a list of zoological Fellows, which he attributes to the 'continual pressure of urgent work'. He now encloses a typewritten list, which he asks Lankester to check and mark with any necessary corrections and return so that he may set it up for printing. He is, however, uncertain of the form in which to print it due to uncertainty about its destination, and asks if Lankester believes it will go into the "Year-Book" for the following year which would mean it should be in 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' form.
