TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Henry Head, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison notes receipt of Head's letter with the enclosed cheque, which needs supplementing, and his request for dinner tickets will be attended to.

He apologises that Head has been waiting a decision regarding Dr Beevor's paper, and explains that he had believed the matter settled, having met with Beevor who informed him that publication of his address in "Brain" was to be deferred until after its appearance in the Royal Society's publications, and that he had informed Head to that effect. He regrets the inconvenience to which Head has been put by the apparent neglect of the subject, which was unintentional.
