TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Alfredo Antunes Kanthack
Date26 July 1897
DescriptionAt the beginning of the month Harrison had a type written copy made of Kanthack's last report on his Ngana investigations, the manuscript of which Harrison has at the Society, but he cannot put his hand on the typewritten copy and it occurred to him that he may have sent it to Kanthack for perusal, without noting the fact. Asks if Kanthack has it and if so whether he would return it as Harrison has to send it to South Africa.
