|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to J Marchant, 42 Great Russell Street, WC
|9 July 1915
|'With further reference to your letter of June 29th I am sorry that I have not been able to trace here the letter you refer to as having been addressed by the late Dr Wallace to the Evolution Committee of the Society. They would probably have been addressed personally to Sir Francis Galton, and I do not know who assumed charge of his papers after his death.
The Evolution Committee of the Society, as I knew it, was established only in 1897. If you are unable to trace the letter elsewhere and can give me any further clue I will pursue the enquiry.'
