TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 October 1905
DescriptionSince Lankester's illness has prevented him from taking an active part recently in the Tropical Diseases business, Lankester may like to have before tomorrow's meeting a fairly full summary of the business to be laid before the Committee, which Harrison has drawn up and encloses [not enclosed].

Is proposing to put in the agenda paper a question whether this Committee should not have its minutes printed and circulated. It seems a pity now that they have authority to draw money from the Government Grant Fund for such purposes, that the Committee should not have the benefit of the convenience of having such matters in print before them.
