TitleCopy letter from John Rose Bradford to Professor Gustaf Retzius, Foreign Member of the Royal Society
Date25 February 1908
DescriptionThe President and Council of the Royal Society ask Retzius to deliver before the Society the Croonian Lecture for 1908. If Reitzius consents to this Bradford asks for him to let him know the subject and the date when it would be more convenient to visit London. The most suitable time, so far as the Royal Society is concerned, would probably be at one of the Meetings in May. These will be held on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th of May. An honorarium of about fifty guineas is attached to the Lecture.
