TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Michael Foster, [Fellow of the Royal Society], Great Shelford, Cambridge
Date10 November 1902
DescriptionIs sorry to learn from Foster's telegram that he is unwell. In view of Foster's prospective absence, would be glad if Foster would look through the draft Council Minutes [not enclosed] before they are put into type. Also sends the rather long contribution for the Draft Report from Armstrong, and shall be glad to know how much of it is to be accepted for insertion.

Queries how long they are to wait for Council members' amendments to the report before proceeding with printing.

Encloses several other matters with a minuting form [no enclosures]. Notes it would greatly expedite business if Harrison had authority to write and sign Foster's name or the Secretaries names jointly, to some of the letters which arise out of Council Minutes.
