TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to His Excellency the Minister for the Republic of Chile
Date11 June 1895
DescriptionThe Royal Society have been asked to advise Her Majesty's Government concerning the presentation of certain complete sets of the 'Challenger' Reports and are of the opinion that a copy should be given to an institution in Chile. They were inclined to choose the National Library at Santiago but as the reports are largely concerned with marine science and especially marine biology they are inclined to think that some institution in Valparaiso might be more appropriate. The Society would be indebted to His Excellency for advice on the matter.
