TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 June 1906
DescriptionEncloses the progress report which he mentioned to Lankester at the Soiree on Wednesday and shall be obliged by Lankester looking at it and returning it [not enclosed], it he approves it, as soon as possible, as the Colonial Office want it immediately. It does not purport to be a scientific report but Harrison has consulted the Colonial Office people and finds it is the sort of thing they want and both Sir A Geikie and Colonel [David] Bruce have approved it.

The report of the sub-committee on further pursuit of the enquiry is ready and will be circulated to Lankester and the Committee today or tomorrow. Geikie thinks it desirable to have a meeting of the Committee before people disperse and suggests 2 or 3 July. Asks Lankester which suits best.
