TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 January 1905
DescriptionIn response to Lankester's note of 14 January, Harrison has written to Drs Mott and Martin asking them to send Lankester notes as to the Sleeping Sickness Conference. Asks if the Memorandum of Sir M Foster which has already been sent to Lankester will meet the case, or if something further is wanted. Presumes Lankester means C J Martin not Sidney, and that Lankester knows that he was not one of the sub-committee nominated to attend the Conference.

Is currently getting the 'Year Book' through the press and asks if Lankester can wait for that to come out for a list of the Fellows.

Encloses copy of a letter from the Secretary of the London School of Tropical Medicine, and if Lankester will let him know what arrangements will suit him, Harrison will send round notices to the other members of the Committee.
