TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date27 February 1906
DescriptionHarrison asks for clarification concerning their discussions about the proposed new Technological Institute at Kensington, with his notes of the proceedings of the Council Meeting being quite vague as it was not on the agenda, but was mentioned by Lankester at the end of the meeting. One of Harrison's notes states that Lankester deferred giving the matter attention, but his recollection of the subsequent conversation was that he proposed a public letter to the President about it. He asks if Lankester wishes any notice on the subject in his name to appear in the Minutes.
