TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date2 October 1900
DescriptionThe Royal Society has received a paper from Dr [Samuel Rickard] Christophers in Lagos, on 'The Anatomy and Histology of the Adult Female Mosquito'. The paper is accompanied by a number of plates and Sir M Foster thinks it ought to be regarded as a paper to the Society rather than as one of the reports to the Malaria Committee. Foster has asked Harrison to ask Lankester to take a look at the paper and to say if he thinks it ought to be treated in this way. Asks if he should send the paper and plates or whether Lankester will call.
