TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [William Abbott] Herdman, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date21 June 1901
DescriptionThe only proposals for the Gunning Fund at present are those Herdman's has, and the one recommended by the Physiology Committee. Until the Botany Committee meets next Wednesday, Harrison cannot say what directions they have reached. Has spoken to Sir Michael Foster on the subject of a joint meeting, but it is considered how they arrive at a joint recommendation is a matter of the Chairmen to settle themselves. Harrison is not sending Herdman's circular to the members of the Zoology Committee until he hears from him again.

Explains that the Gunning Fund has not hitherto been made to an individual, but to a purpose.
