TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Francis Darwin, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date17 July 1914
DescriptionHas received his letter from France which answers the essential part of a letter which he sent to Gloucester. The memo of Dr Waller about Bose has not been sent out to either of the Committees to which it was referred. The Chairman of the Physiology Committee thought it better not to circulate it, and so it was considered only by those members who attended the meeting, but there was no quorum, so it will have to go round in the end. Harrison will assume this is the case unless he hears otherwise from Darwin in the next few days, and will send it out this month to the Botany Committee with a view to being considered at a meeting early in October.
