TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Charles Scott Sherrington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison asks that Sherrington look at the accompanying proofs of one of the figures, figure 7, to his 'Innervation' paper, as it has been reduced experimentally to a greater degree than he marked, in order to bring it into the width of the page and to see whether all the relevant detail could be satisfactorily brought out. He believes the trial has been successful, and asks if Sherrington agrees.

Harrison believes the large figure was the only one about which there was any question, as the other two were smaller and so they propose to do them at the size he requested in his letter to Collings.
