TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Carmichael McIntosh, Fellow of the Royal Society, 2 Abbotsford Crescent, St Andrews, N.B.
Date27 February 1900
DescriptionIn reply to McIntosh's note of the 23rd to Sir Michael Foster, obituary notices are now published in collected form in the year-book, but separate copies are struck off prior to publication. Foster therefore thinks that McIntosh's request for independent publication ought to come before Council.

McIntosh's notice of Sir William Flower was not ready for publication in the recently issued year-book due to the delay in preparing Flower's portrait.
