TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr M P Utudjian, Pera, Chichli, Appartement Ethem Pacha Number 10, Constantinople
Date23 May 1905
DescriptionThanks Utudjian for his letter of 11 May but regrets that it is an established rule of the Society never to give their opinion as a body on subjects submitted to them. The Society concerns itself almost exclusively with pure science, and is compelled to leave to the more technical societies the consideration of such questions as the application of medicine.
