TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Lt Colonel D [David] Prain CMG, FRS
Date12 January 1912
DescriptionHarrison writes that Prain may remembers that more than a year ago the Council, on Prain's recommendation, made a grant of £50 to Mr F N Williams towards the cost of publication of his work on the British Flora. He has now sent in a further grant application for the second volume. Harrison is instructed to ask whether Prain would favour the Council with his opinion on this and to ask whether the work has sufficient publicity.
