TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr [Francis] Darwin, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date22 October 1906
DescriptionThanks Darwin for his letter of the previous day. Asks if the animal diseases sub-committee should meet before the full Committees, and if so whether it would be as well to take one of the earlier dates Darwin gave for the sub-committee, and a later one for the full Committee.

Encloses a minute from Colonel [David] Bruce [not enclosed], in reply to one of the Indian Advisory documents sent round in July, from which Darwin will see Bruce thought there ought to be a meeting of the animal diseases sub-committee. Bruce suggests an addition to the sub-committee's body and Harrison queries Darwin's opinion on this.
