TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr M O Foster, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 March 1908
Description'Dear Sir,
With reference to your letter of March 20, I fear an immediate answer cannot be given to your enquiry because there are no precedents for the republication in other journals of obituary notices issued in our publications; but I will bring the matter forward on the first opportunity, One of the Fellows of this Society has already been asked to write an obituary notice of Mr O'Sullivan, but it has not progressed far.'
