TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr H P Planar, Dresden
Date22 February 1906
DescriptionHarrison acknowledges receipt of Planar's letter, with enclosed copies of his treatise on the Liver Theory, but explains that, at the Royal Society, they have never heard of a prize, offered by the late Queen Victoria, for a paper on Bright's Disease. He is forwarding the letter to the Royal College of Physicians in the hope that they will know more, and has asked that they communicate directly with Planar.
