TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr George Robert Milne Murray, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 September 1899
DescriptionThe Clerk of the Antarctic Committee came in this morning and told Harrison that he has been waiting to receive a copy of the memorandum drawn up by the Biological Sectional Committee for the consideration of the General Committee. Harrison did not like to give the Clerk a copy without Murray's approval as it may have been modified since printing in July.

There will probably have to be a meeting of the Joint General Committee very soon and Harrison imagines Murray will want this report to be sent round to them.
