TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor C [Charles] S [Scott] Sherrington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date15 January 1909
Description'Dear Professor Sherrington,
I believe you are the most active English member of the International Brain Commission which was started under the auspices of the International Association of Academies. I therefore send you the enclosed circular letter which we have received from Professor Waldeyer, and am to ask if you will be kind enough to advise us whether the Royal Society should, in your opinion, take any action in the direction indicated in the letter. Please return me the letter.
Perhaps you would minute your opinion on the enclosed reference form which is convenient as a record of matters referred.'
