TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sidney Frederic Harmer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 November 1901
DescriptionWith reference to Harmer's letter to Sir M Foster concerning his request to Hamer to draw up an obituary notice of Professor Lacaze-Duthiers, Foster has already applied to Professor [Edwin Ray] Lankester, who found himself unable to do what was wanted. Foster therefore applied to Harmer. If Harmer would undertake it Foster would be obliged, there is no immediate hurry for a few weeks, but Harrison would be glad to have it in print by the middle of December.
