TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Morris William Travers, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date1 November 1907
DescriptionIn response to Travers' letter of 26 October, Harrison would be happy to assist by sending out papers relating to the Indian Institute's Professorship to any applicants. He notes that only one request for information has been received so far, but the enclosed note from Nature was received that morning. He understands from the President that an advertisement in the following week's Nature would be too late.

With regard to the next meeting of the Committee, which he mentions as fixed for Wednesday, he states that the President has checked this and asked Harrison to remind Travers that the meeting is to occur on Thursday rather then Wednesday, and Harrison is to issue notices to the Committee for that day.
