TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Alexander Emmanuel Rodolphe Agassiz, Foreign Member of the Royal Society
Date20 September 1904
DescriptionHarrison has twice had his attention called to a certain J Martin Littlejohn, who has used the title of 'Fellow of the Royal Society, London' on the title page of a publication called 'The Science of Osteopathy', which appears to be circulated widely as an advertisement in the United States. Harrison does not expect anything can be done with such a man, but Harrison is bringing it to his notice, to take any steps he can.

Harrison tells him everyone was very sorry not to see him at the International meeting at Whitsuntide. He will have heard that Sir Michael Foster is seriously unwell, but is hopefully recovering, although slowly.
