TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir George King, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date27 June 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that the Indian Government Advisory Committee met the previous day and appointed five special Sub-Committees to consider the different sections of the programmes and reports submitted to the Committee by the India Office. King has been nominated a member of the botany sub-committee alongside Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer, James Sykes Gamble and Lieutenant Colonel David Prain.

The only document immediately before them is the annual report of the Board of Scientific Advice for 1905-6, but the Programme of Work for 1907-8 is likely to be received next month. The Chairman has proposed to Prain, who has been asked to act as chairman of the sub-committee, that these documents be considered together to allow a report upon them to be made to the full committee early in the autumn.
