|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to James Sykes Gamble, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||27 June 1907|
|Description||Harrison 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. Gamble has been nominated a member of the botany sub-committee alongside Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer, Sir George King 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.
A postscript notes that Gamble has also been nominated a member of a sub-committee on forestry, of which King has been asked to act as Chairman.
