TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Leonard Hill, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 June 1902
DescriptionSir Michael Foster says there may be a difficulty about a demonstration of Hill's method of observing the circulation under pressure of oxygen on account of the regulations about vivisection. Presumes he is fully aware of these rules, and knows better than they do whether performing such a demonstration would place the Royal Society in any difficulty through having no licence. Otherwise the demonstration would be interesting at the meeting and the Soiree.
