TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Francis Wall Oliver, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date30 October 1912
DescriptionThanks him for returning the referees' reports on Bose's paper. Is now sending copies of the two physiologists reports, assuming that he does not want to see his own again. Confesses that he shared Oliver's impression that the paper was handed over to the Botany Committee to deal with, but that appears not to have been the intention of the Biological Secretary. Although the Physiology COmmittee has not, as a Committee, had the paper under its eye, it is going to meet in a fortnight, and so it was thought the paper had better be reported then.

Sending a rough proof of the minutes of the last meeting of Oliver's committee, and shall be much obliged if he kindly peruses them, and returns them approved or amended.
