|Title||Copy letter from Michael Foster, to the Agent-General for New South Wales, Westminster Chambers, 9 Victoria Street, S.W.|
|Date||6 May 1896|
|Description||Foster states that Professor Liversidge of Syndey, New South Wales [Australia] is in this country [Great Britain] having been appointed by the Royal Society of New South Wales as a delegate to the International Conference on a Catalogue of Scientific Literature. He explains that the delegates have been appointed by their respective Governments and not learned societies, and so Liversidge's appointment is the result of a misapprehension. However, the Royal Society of London would consider his presence to be such an asset that they believe he should be formally appointed as a delegate for New South Wales.|
He also states that although the conference will consider the question of providing a guarantee for the expense of carrying out the proposed catalogue, the presence of a delegate does not entail any immediate financial responsibility.
