TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to Professor Dr Fischer von Waldheim, Imperat. Botaniceskij Sad, St. Petersburg, Russia
Date2 May 1898
DescriptionThe esteemed Fellow, Mr Henry Elwes (the distinguished Naturalist) is starting for a prolonged journey in Russia for the purpose of exploring the Zoology of the upper valley of the Yenisei. Being 13 years since Elwes was in St Petersburg, he is concerned that he will now meet few of the men in science whose acquiantance he then made, in particular Dr Regel. Harrison therefore commends Elwes to Fischer's care. Any assistance given, such as introducing him to other men of science would be highly appreciated.
