TitleCopy letter from [Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society]; to Professor [Charles Scott] Sherrington, Chairman of the Physiology Committee and FRS
Date26 January 1917
DescriptionRefers to an earlier letter from Professor [Charles Scott] Sherrington about 'Chauveau'. Notes that Professor Sherrington was right about Chauveau, that this foreign member was the distinguished physiologist. States that the age confirms it, because Jean Baptiste Auguste Chauveau was born in 1827 and the letter announcing the Society's foreign member's death states that he was 90 years old.
