|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [W D] Halliburton
|3 January 1899
|Professor [Michael] Foster is abroad and it is therefore necessary to ask for Halliburton's assistance, as Chairman of the Physiology Sectional Committee, in connection with a paper which has just been received from Professor Herdman and Boyce on the Histology and Bacteriology of the Oyster.
The postcard enclosed [not enclosed] is usually sent to the Secretary when a paper is received for consideration by the [Royal] Society. This card, taken in conjunction with the Standing Order will show Halliburton the lines on which are proceeded as acceptance of a paper, the work 'print' in this case referring to the Abstract, which Harrison also enclosed [not enclosed].
If Halliburton thinks the paper is suitable for acceptance, asks Halliburton to name the Fellows to whom the paper can be provisionally submitted as referees.
