TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Herrn Professor Dr Friedrich Wilhelm Georg Kohlrausch, Foreign Member, Royal Society, Physikalisch-Technische Reichsanstalt, March. Str. 25, Charlottenburg, Berlin
Date13 April 1897
DescriptionIn reply to Kohlrausch's letter of the 2 April, Harrison has made enquiries and finds that the Reichsanstalt has been placed on the list of institutions which exchange publications with the Society and that it is, consequently, entitled to the issues of 1895 and 1896 of the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]', which he has accordingly given directions to have forwarded to Kohlrausch at once.

Regarding Kohlrausch's own copies as a Foreign Member of the Society, he is entitled to receive part two dated 1895 and the volumes for 1896 together with the 'extra volume' for 1896, the 'Magnetic Survey of the British Isles' by Professors Rucker and Thorpe. These volumes should have been dispatched to Kohlrausch before and Harrison apologises for the delay.
