TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Walter Frank Raphael Weldon, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 January 1906
DescriptionHarrison states he was sorry to miss Weldon during his visit, having unsuccessfully given chase. He explains that there are several matters which were referred to Weldon, with no response received thus far, with the most urgent being an application promoted by Sir Charles Eliot for the publication of some zoological plates by Alder and Hancock of the British Nudibranchiata. The matter ought to be laid before Council at their meeting this week, so if Weldon returns it with his opinion on the matter by Wednesday, it will save a month's delay. He was sent the application before Christmas.
