TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Michael Foster, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 December 1903
DescriptionHarrison sends two enclosures, which he lists as follows,

1) Proof report of the Disease of Animals sub-Committee with proposed amendments by members. The only copies outstanding belong to Bradford and Bruce, and so he has written asking for their proofs with any comments to be sent directly to Foster at Shelford
2) Draft of the main letter to the India Office with proposed corrections incorporated. Harrison presumes both that Foster has dismissed [William Turner] Thiselton Dyer's objection to it being sent in letter form, and that it will be signed by Sir Archibald Geikie and so there is no need for it to be written out before Christmas. He asks that Foster return the draft so he can write it out in readiness. He also presumes that an extra paragraph referring to the enclosure of the Animal Diseases Report will be added.

A third enclosure is detailed in manuscript, namely an English version of the Brain Commissison and his letter.
