TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr [Augustus Desire] Waller, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date12 July 1901
DescriptionAfter the death of [Emil] du Bois-Reymond three or four years ago, Sir Michael Foster applied to Waller for an obituary notice. There is a note which states Waller accepted, but Harrison can find no trace of the obituary ever having arrived. Asks if he has any recollection of it, as Foster is enquiring for it.
