TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date9 March 1905
DescriptionEncloses proof copy of a report from Greig received from the Foreign Office. It seems so important that Sir A Geikie thinks the Society ought to send it round to the Committee. Is getting copies struck but Geikie wishes Lankester to see the report at once in case it may influence him in the communication Geikie understood Lankester was to make to Mr Lyttelton. Queries what jurisdiction comes into play when the limits of the new sphere of the Colonial Office are passed.
