TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr F [Frederick] W [Walker] Mott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date1 March 1909
DescriptionCajal's name is among those definitely put down for Foreign Membership therefore Harrison thinks he must be considered until withdrawn at a meeting of the Council. The is no compulsion for Mott to furnish a statement in support of Cajal's candidature, but as he remains a candidate, Harrison thinks it would be more correct for a statement to be circulated on his behalf. If Mott does not care to appear to that extent as his supported, perhaps Harrison should ask some other member of the Council to prepare it.
