TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Surgeon General Sir David Bruce, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date27 July 1914
DescriptionHas his paper of 21 July about the papers which Harvey claims to have his name upon, and shortly afterwards a letter from Harvey arrived reiterating his desires. Has spoken to Bradford about it, and he is quite content to leave the matter to be settled between Bruce and Harrison. Asks if there us any objection to throwing the man an amount of sop by inserting a footnote stating that Harvey took part in the work described in the papers, but having resigned from the Commission in September 1913 before they were completed, his name does not appear in the title.
