TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to Sir Joseph Hooker, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date16 October 1899
DescriptionSeveral of the Biological Committee object to the words 'primary object' in the memorandum and do not like to sign it. Foster has suggested a change in red ink. Hopes Hooker will approve of this as it is rather important that the Committee should make a definite report before the Joint Committee meets. Queries if Hooker is to be in town any day after Thursday so that they might have a chat about this and other matters.
