TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Editors of The Lancet
Date19 December 1903
DescriptionHarrison explains that there has been a delay in his response to their letter of 15 December caused by it being addressed to his predecessor, and the letter then being forwarded to him in the country. It is noted that this should not have caused a delay to their plans as Harrison had already arranged with the authors that they be provided with a proof of Messrs [John Bretland] Farmer, [J E S] Moore and [C E] Walker's paper.

Harrison suggests that they correct their address book to prevent further such errors.
