TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Dukinfield Henry Scott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date31 July 1897
DescriptionPresumes that a communication has been made to Scott with regard to the botany scheme which was presented to the International Catalogue Committee at its last meeting, but is may be well for Harrison to forward the resolution of the Committee, which was to the effect that the attention of the Botany Sub-Committee be called to the mathematical Scheme, a copy of which is enclosed [not attached], and that they be requested to adopt some system of registration less distinctly decimal than that which they have used in their specimen scheme.
