TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr M O Foster, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 March 1908
Description'Dear Dr Foster,
With further reference to your letter of March 20, the question as to using the obituary notices written for the Royal Society will have ultimately to come before the Council; but the Officers have little doubt that the Council will agree to a general arrangement with the Chemical Society for dealing with obituary notices in common, including those referred to in your letter. It is assumed that the source from which they are taken would be in all cases acknowledged.'
