TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Miss Chambers
Date29 July 1896
DescriptionHarrison would like to see the senor assistants in Miss Chambers' department tomorrow if convenient and he will hand over various things for Miss Chambers on Friday. Mr James is in charge and represents Harrison in his absence. In case of any special emergency which James is not able to help with, Harrison will leave his address and can be communicated with via telegram.

Regarding the Committee Room, if Chambers will let himself or Mr White know the works kept there which she says she has frequent occasion to consult, they will make arrangements for their being placed at her disposal. Harrison cannot understand that very frequent reference to them can be necessary and for various reasons it would be desirable to keep this room locked. As to the loan of books to other Societies nothing ought to be taken out of the building without application being made and the fact being duly recorded.

Thinks he has found a space for the ladies who ride bicycles to store them.
