TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor John Rose Bradford, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison asks that Bradford look at the enclosed draft minutes and return them approved or amended.

He communicates his disatisfaction with the fact that the paper by Dr Plimmer, presented at the Sleeping Sickness Sub-Committee, should be submitted as a joint paper with Thomson, communciated by Edwin Ray Lankester, with no indication that it is the result of the operations of a committee appointed by the Royal Society. He did not wish to intervene in the meeting, but states that he felt then and still feels that they should be collectively responsible for the results of any experiments and that such a paper should be published as a report of the sub-committee, making reference to any individuals who have carried out the experiments.
