TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr James Whitbread Lee Glaisher, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 May 1902
DescriptionHarrison has not yet received back Professor [Karl] Pearson's paper 'Mathematical Contributions to the Theory of Evolution. XI. On the Influence of Natural Selection on the Variability and Correlation of Organs', which Glaisher promised to return. Would be glad to have it back, as the reputation of the Royal Society is damaged through long delays in the publication of papers presented to it.
