TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Herbert Rix
Date20 January 1899
DescriptionAt the Council meeting yesterday a letter from Professor Sydney Hickson, relating to the regulations for the disposal of Government Grant specimens, was referred to the Government Grant Committee.

Has today received a letter from Dr Sharp on behalf of the Sandwich Islands Committee, giving particulars of the proposed distribution of the copies of the work in aid of which a grant was voted by the Council out of the Publication Fund some time ago. Feels rather uncertain about the position of this Committee and as to the conditions of the grant voted having been fulfilled. Would like to talk to Rix when next in town.
