TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to, Professor Charles Scott Sherrington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 March 1903
DescriptionHarrison sent him a card at Sir Michael Foster's request telling him there was no need to come to the Committee meeting tomorrow. He sees that Sherrington now requires more information. The principal business of tomorrow's meeting is to settle an agenda paper for the meeting of the International Council at Whitsuntide. The meeting has been summoned for 4 June, which wasn't convenient for everybody at the Royal Society, but the foreigners preferred it.

The most important matter to be discussed is one of policy of the whole Association and of the Academies which constitute it. The Germans have sown a disposition to ignore the Association and to run things by themselves. The Saxons, state their opinion that the Association is only concerned with the matters of one or the other of the constituent Academies.
