TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor W [William] A [Abbott] Herdman FRS
Date6 April 1910
Description'Dear Prof Herdman,
At a recent meeting of the Soiree Exhibits Committee it was suggested that it might be of interest to show Dr Francis Ward's photomicrographs of plaice, taken in the Port Erin Fish Hatchery, and I was asked to take your opinion on the matter.
Also, if you think you would yourself have anything of interest to exhibit, perhaps you will kindly let me know. The Soiree will be held this year on Wednesday, May 25th.'
