TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to George Robert Milne Murray, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 October 1899
DescriptionHas heard this morning that a meeting of the Joint Antarctic Committee has been arranged by the two Presidents for next Monday so that if Murray wants to arrange any joint meeting of the various Sub-Committees before hand, there is not much time to lose. Harrison mentioned Murray's idea on this subject to Professor [Arthur William] Rucker and he thought it a very good one.

Expects Sir Michael Foster back in England before this week but feels doubtful of being able to see him before Monday and until Foster comes in, Murray's memorandum cannot finally be settled.
