TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to, Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society, British Museum (Natural History)
Date14 January 1903
DescriptionLankester's letter will be put before the President, but Harrison believes it has practically be answered by a letter to the Secretaries on the opinion of the Sectional Committee on Mrs [Maria Ogilvie] Gordon's paper. They have not accepted it to be read, and wish him to know before the matter goes before Council, to give the opportunity of withdrawing the paper to facilitate publication elsewhere.

Regarding his complaint of the early hour of the Committee, Harrison has also had complaints about its lateness.
