TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Sydney John Hickson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date14 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that, as far as they can predict, the business to be transacted at the Council on 30 November will be of a formal character only, including receiving the report of the auditors and thanking medallists. Any urgent business arising may be considered then, but there are only formal matters waiting Council at the moment.

If Hickson decides not to attend the Anniversary meeting, Harrison asks that he let him know of another convenient date for a meeting of the Zoology Committee. He hopes that Hickson will be able to find another day other than the morning of Anniversary day for the meeting, and proposes the 5 December, Council day, as an alternative.
