TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Alfred Cort Haddon, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 December 1910
DescriptionHis application to have the balance of the grant made to him in 1900 to assist with the publication of the results of the Torres Straits expedition will come before the Council this week, and it would help if Haddon could send in a state of the progress of the publication which was supposedly to come out in six volumes. The original vote was that £55 be paid per volume, and it appears that £220 has be paid on this basis so far. Council will require some evidence as to the further progress of publication before paying further instalments.
