|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Henry Head, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||8 October 1907|
|Description||Harrison responds to Head's letter, stating that though there is no obvious reason to delay the publication of Dr Beevor's paper in "Brain", the case is complicated by the fact that the paper is yet to be read at the Royal Society, and the abstract has not been published, although it has been passed under vacation rules for publication in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. If he can wait a day, Harrison will consult with his superior officers on this matter as it relates to policy.|
The length and form of the address Head wishes to publish will affect their decision, as a paraphrase of Beevor's long 70 page paper with nine plates would affect its publication in Philosophical Transactions. Harrison notes that the coloured plates submitted with Beevor's paper are proofs from drawings already made on lithographic stone, and if they were originally intended for Head's publication he believes the Society should be informed.
