TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H John Falk, The Athenaeum, Liverpool
Date29 July 1896
DescriptionWith reference to Falk's letter regarding the Boole Manuscripts, Falk is directed by the Council of the Society to say that they are quite willing to accede to Falk's suggestion of binding the manuscripts, but they will be glad to have from Falk an assurance of a definite date by which the manuscripts will be returned to the Society. The Council has no desire to press Falk unduly, but would be glad to recover possession of the manuscripts as soon as they have served the purpose for which Falk borrowed them.
