TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [William Abbott] Herdman, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 April 1901
DescriptionThe 8 May is out of question for a meeting of the Zoology Committee, as that is the date of the soiree. The Government Grant Committee is meeting on 15 May, but Herdman could hold the Committee in the afternoon. In addition to certain 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' papers to report as having been proceeded with, other business includes Gemmill's paper, and that the Secretaries consider that Punnett's paper should be considered by the Committee at a meeting before a final decision is arrived at.
