TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir John Murray KCB, FRS
Date28 June 1909
Description'Dear Sir John Murray,
We are sorry you cannot undertake the obituary of Dr Neumayer. Failing your consent, the Council decided that another Fellow of the Society should be asked.
With regard to Dr Cushman's request for a copy of the Foraminifera volume of the Challenger Reports, I obtained authority to requisition it from the Stationery Officer, but find from their statement of stock that this volume is exhausted. I have written to Dr Cushman to tell him this and to express regret suggesting that the only resource now would seem to be a second-hand bookseller.'
