TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor E Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date2 March 1899
DescriptionHarrison telegraphed Lankester today in case he had any idea of taking special steps before the meeting but as nothing can be done, is sending the two certificates forms for future use.

The Physiology Committee have before them a paper by Dr MacMunn, 'On the Gastric Gland of Molluscs and Decapod Crustacea: its structure and functions'. It is primarily a physiological paper but the Chairman and Dr Foster concur in thinking that the opinion of a comparative anatomist should be obtained upon it. Therefore asking whether Lankester can suggest the name of a referee.
