TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Karl Pearson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date21 January 1901
DescriptionThe Sectional Committee has agreed to recommend the publication of Pearson's paper on homotyposis in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' and this recommendation will go forward to the Council at their next meeting.

Asks if he should proceed with the printing of the abstract, hitherto held over by Pearson, and if he has any amendments or alterations to make to either the paper or abstract.

Regarding Pearson's complaint regarding the printing of his paper number VII in the evolution series, Harrison has not been able to deal with this as he does not have the original manuscript, it appears Pearson did not return it. Asks for this to be returned. Is having an erratum slip prepared for insertion in the completed volume.
