TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Monsieur le Secretaire, L'Académie Impériale des Sciences, Saint-Pétersbourg
Date23 February 1897
DescriptionAcknowledges with thanks the 'Bulletin de l'Académie Impériale', Tome VI, 1897, January. Harrison takes the opportunity of mentioning the irregularity with which the publications of the Imperial Academy reach the Society. They have received nothing of Tome V for 1896, and of Tome IV they have received only number one. Of Tome III, they have numbers one to three, but not four.

There are also deficiencies in the Society's collection of the 'Memoires'. for which they have applied on previous occasions. The Society would be greatly obliged if the Secretary could furnish them with the deficient numbers.
