TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Charles Scott Sherrington, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date31 March 1905
DescriptionSince Sherrington acted as the English Secretary to the International Commission for studying the brain, Harrison thinks he ought to appeal to him on the subject of a communication received from Vienna, the Directing Academy of the International Association, asking the Society to inform Professor Waldeyer, Chairman of the International organization on this subject, of any steps being taken in England to carry out the resolutions of the Commission.

Harrison referred the matter to Sir M Foster, and at his suggestion referred it in the first place to Professor Langley, but Sherrington will see from their enclosed letters [not enclosed], that someone in this country ought to take the matter up, and should be in a position to communicate officially directly with Waldeyer. Asks if Sherrington is in a position to do this.
