TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Karl Pearson, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 March 1911
DescriptionAll copies of the Evolution Report seem to have been cut down to about eight and a half inches. The page of type is of the same size in all the numbers. The only difference is that the paper of number one was cut down after the number was stitched up. When binding he other numbers can be cut down to its size, the leaves will then stand about eight and a half inches high and the whole book about the size of the uncut numbers - eight and three quarter inches.

To the best of Harrison's belief none of the Eugenics Laboratory publications have arrived.

Some of the Biometric Laboratory Memoirs - Drapers' Series - were received a few years back, the Technical Series I-IV, and the Biometric Series II & III. Harrison would be glad to have a complete set of both these, so far as they are not reprints.
