TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to B Daydon Jackson, Linnean Society
Date3 November 1905
DescriptionQueries if W F Kirby would be willing to furnish an Obituary Notice of the late Mr [George Bowdler] Buckton for the obituary volume of the Royal Society. It is not usual for anyone outside of the Society to be asked to undertake such a duty, but the Council having seen Kirby's notice in 'Nature', thought that he might be asked. Asks if Jackson could provide Kirby's full name and address.
