TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor C [Charles] S [Scott] Sherrington FRS
Date20 March 1912
Description'There has been considerable discussion, as perhaps you know, about the paper by Prof Thornton on the Electrical Conductivity of Bacteria which you communicated to the Society some little time ago. It was read last Thursday, and now I have been requested by Sir J Larmor, Secy, to write to the author to the effect expressed in the enclosed letter, which perhaps you will be good enough to send on to him. It is in accordance with the precedent that a communication of this kind should be made through the communicator of the paper.'
