TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Major Percy Alexander MacMahon, Fellow of the Royal Society, Queen Anne's Mansions, S.W.
Date29 June 1906
DescriptionThe members of the Scientific Relief Committee who attended the Tuesday meeting were sorry not to have MacMahon in the Chair. As there were enough to quorum they discussed the case of Mr Wanklyn, which had previously been referred to Dr Horace Brown and Dr Russell for opinion. After discussion it was decided by a majority of two out of three to make the recommendation to the Prime Minister which Harrison has minuted on the enclosed [not enclosed]. Asks if MacMahon will sign the minute.

Has heard nothing more from Dr Waller, to whom he has written several times about the case of Dr Snow, which is a still outstanding reference from the Prime Minister. Asks if MacMahon can advise what course to take in this matter.
