TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to F A Bather, British Museum (Nat. Hist.), Cromwell Road, S.W.
Date10 February 1899
DescriptionDoes not understand Bather's letter. The memorandum which Harrison sent was drawn up simply by way of supplementary explanation of the Report of the Royal Society's Committee and contained nothing new in the principles upon which that Report was drawn up. Unsure which Sub-Committees to which Bather is referring and in whose name he writes. Outlines the latest developments of the International Conference and the organisation of the Catalogue.
