TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to the Netherlands Minister
Date15 April 1896
DescriptionFoster regrets that a letter intended for the Minister of Foreign Affairs at the Hague was, as the Minister guessed in his note of 13 April, sent to Copenhagen due to a clerical error.

They have heard that morning from the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs that Professor Korteweg of the University of Amsterdam has been appointed by the Netherlands Government as their delegate to the Conference on Cataloguing Scientific Literature. Foster notes that they can now send printed documents relating to the conference direct to Korteweg.
