TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to [George Albert] Boulenger, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 March 1901
DescriptionRegrets to find that a misunderstanding of the printers has resulted in his obituary of the late Dr Anderson was omitted from the Year Book, along with two others. Resolves to devise a new manner of working with obituary notices. It has been decided to publish a separate volume containing the obituary notices from the last publication in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' up until 1900. Therefore assures him that his obituary of Anderson will appear in more permanent form. Hopes this will be sufficient reparation for the regrettable omission.
