TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Johannes Bosscha, Haarlem, Holland
Date13 October 1897
DescriptionThe letter Bosscha mentioned, number 1483, is dated 1675 not '1675/6' as printed in the catalogue. So far as they can discover the Society does not possess Huyghen's reply to Nehemiah Grew's letter of 1678. Letters numbers 1484, 1486 and 1487, he will endeavour to have transcribed as soon as possible. Sends thanks for volume VII of the 'Correspondence' presented to the library.
