TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to J Cameron, 12 Bell Street, St Andrews, North Britain
Date20 October 1902
DescriptionRegarding Cameron's request to withdraw his paper on the retina in the chick from the archives, nothing can be done in the matter without the authority of Council, since by the statues, papers preserved in the archive are never to be lent without the authority of Council. If Cameron only requires the paper for temporary use a formal application could be made. An alternative would be to apply for the drawings only, and for leave to have a copy made of the text.
