TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mrs [Augustus Desire] Waller
Date11 December 1902
DescriptionDiscusses the accidental miss-transmission of some fish required for experimental demonstration at the Society by A D Waller. Wrote the enclosed letter last week to Dr Waller on this subject, but did not sign or dispatch it as it seemed to make too much of a trivial accident. Since however Dr Waller is pursing the matter, and in view of his note endorsed on the Fishing Company's letter, which he returns enclosed [not enclosed], Harrison now encloses his original letter to emphsize the principal that no sort of responsibility in the matter rests with the Royal Society
