TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to Sir Henry Enfield Roscoe, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date[25] July 1896
DescriptionRoscoe's letter in reference to the Phil Trans [Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society] and Eton College was carefully considered by the Library Committee but it was felt Eton could not be separated from the other great public schools in such as way that the Society could say yes to the former and not to the latter. In consequence they cannot accede to Roscoe's request.
