TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Lord Avebury [John Lubbock], Fellow of the Royal Society
Date4 October 1907
DescriptionThe Royal Society have discussed the claims submitted on Mr Godman's behalf for the Royal Medal, and they believe the best way to abbreviate the document, which would be too long to print in its entirety, is to set up in type the narrative of Godman's work, with reference made to the list of papers which followed and which could be presented to Council when the claims are considered. Harrison hopes that Avebury approves.
