TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Joseph Henry Gilbert, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date13 October 1897
DescriptionAsks if the library at Rothamsted contains the 'Proceedings of the Society for the Advancement of Agricultural Science in America'. They appear to have been received at the Royal Society in 1896 and then to have disappeared. Wonders if they were thought to be for the Lawes Committee and sent to Rothamsted. If available he would be glad to borrow them for the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers'.
