TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Lord Joseph Lister, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 November 1901
DescriptionSent the reports by Doctors [Samuel Rickard] Christophers and [John William Watson] Stephens to the printers immediately on receipt of Lister's letter of 13 November but has not received a proof yet. In view of these circumstances and of the fact that this week is already rather full of engagements, Sir M Foster thinks it better not to attempt to convene a meeting for his week, but suggest the Thursday afternoon of the following week. Sir M Foster has asked Harrison to add a line for him, in reply to Huggins' note, to say that he has written to Mr Patterson to say that 3 December will do for their meeting.
