TitleCopy Letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir William Preece, KCB, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 May 1908
Description'Dear Sir William,
I have to acknowledge receipt of your letter of yesterday enclosing a long telegram from Mr Case. Having regard to the subject of the telegram, the Secretaries think it should be referred to the Chairman of the Botany Committee, which I am doing. If he thinks it worthy of serious consideration it would presumably be treated as a preliminary note to a paper for the Royal Society, in which case I imagine you would be willing to act as communicator.'
