Date15 July 1903
DescriptionHis' letter of 8 July regarding the French version of the propositions of the special commission for investigation in to the anatomy of the brain, has reached Sir M Foster through the Athenaeum Club and Foster has asked Harrison to write on the subject. Explains that he has not received the 100 copies of the propositions of the commission nor the short report by His and Professor Flechzig. Asks how the parcels were addressed.

Professor [Charles Scott] Sherrington has sent Harrison the decisions of the Commission partly translated into English, but now that he has the French version he will complete the English translation and get them both printed.
