TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Charles Scott Sherrington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 August 1901
DescriptionOnly received Sherrington's letter of 28 August this morning, otherwise he would have sent off Sherrington's drawings last night. Will now go to the engravers and get the drawings and outline sketch and post both before midday if possible, so that Sherrington will receive them this evening. There is no immediate hurry about their return.

The engravers are always doing photographic work and would quickly have prepared photographs or slides to Sherrington's order.
