TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Adam Sedgwick, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 March 1900
DescriptionHas Sedgwick's letter of the previous day. Has sent Professor Ewart's paper to Professor Miall, and Dr Forsyth Major's to Professor Ray Lankester.

Doubts the Society being able to get in both referee's reports on Ewart's paper in time for a meeting before Easter but suggests convenient dates for a meeting if independent of these papers, Sedgwick thinks the Committee should be summoned to consider Forsyth Major and Vernon. It might be best to consider the latter two papers, on similar subjects, before the vacation.
