TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Abbott Herdman, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date19 February 1904
DescriptionHarrison has submitted an enquiry to the printers regarding Herdman's plates for the Hydroid Report, and will will forward their reply as soon as it comes.

With regard to his question about the Science in Schools circular, he is not able to give much additional information. He notes that the resolution of Council was passed months previously when the matter was raised in connection with a report on a letter from Lord Avebury to the Royal Society after the President's 1902 Anniversary Address. The document now being sent to the universities is the result of it having been referred to Committee to edit it into a suitable form. Harrison describes these as 'domestic facts...and do not affect the merits of the question'.
