TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Johnson Sollas, Fellow of the Royal Society, Oxford
Date19 April 1904
DescriptionHarrison responds to Sollas' letter which he received on his return from the Easter holidays, but must enquire further about the paper on Echinodonaste, namely that he refers to it as Spencer's paper but he does not know who this individual is and the paper has no title. They cannot register it under such conditions and so it cannot be submitted for reading or consideration. Sollas must put the author in communication with the Royal Society and request a title, and also must send an abstract if it is to be considered for Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.
