|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society
|[15 January 1906]
|Harrison encloses Dr Sharp's opinion on the application from the Natural History Society of Northumberland for a publication grant. An additional note by Sharp reflects that Walker's Diptera Britannica is largely obsolete and very expensive.
In a manuscript postscript, Harrison states that since writing that morning, Professor Walter Frank Raphael Weldon had visited with a paper 'On the chestnut offspring of thoroughbred mares', noted by him as 'not controversial', which Archibald Geikie has added to the list for Thursday. He was not, however, quick enough to speak to him, so will write to him about the 'Eliot matter'.
