TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor A [Albert] C [Charles] Seward, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date27 November 1908
Description'Dear Professor Seward,
We got in the proofs of Professor Pearson's Welwitchia paper this week, and in accordance with your letter of the 13th instant I have sent a proof out to him, together with figures 3 to 16, with a request that he will select those for omission, and reduce the length of the Section on the details of microspore formations.
I hope the letter will catch him. I have addressed it as you advised, South Africa College, Capetown - "to be forwarded".'
