TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Schafer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 January 1898
DescriptionHarrison sends, at the request of Dr Foster, the abstract of a paper [not enclosed] by Professors Cash and Dunstan, which, being principally physiological in its bearings, Foster believes it should come before Schafer's committee. Foster suggests that it is a paper for submission to both the Physiology and the Chemistry committees. The paper has been accepted for consideration and the abstract ordered for printing by both secretaries.

The paper is accompanied by large cards of smoke tracings, and a photograph of apparatus in the text. Harrison also encloses Professor Dunstan's letter [not enclosed] which expresses some views of the authors, and a letter from Dr Brodie [not enclosed] (which was sent back to him for modification) and wishes to have Schafer's thoughts on the subject.
