DescriptionIs sorry that he should be hindered with this task, but there is so much difficulty in finding a Fellow willing to undertake the obituary notice of Lord Avebury, Harrison has been instructed to press the appeal to Shipley and to beg him that he will write a notice at his leisure. It is not expected to be received until after the vacation, and it need not be very long.
