TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date10 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison has consulted with his superior officers regarding the list of papers which accompanied the statement of claim for Francis Galton, and they suggest that, as the list is already in print, Harrison should seek to acquire sufficient copies to circulate to the Council and thereby avoid making an exception to the usual practice of setting up in full for the statement of claim. If Lankester can help obtain these copies he would appreciate it, and will circulate them with the statement.
