DescriptionGill's letter to Dr [Michael] Foster has come to Harrison in Foster's absence. Regarding the South African Museum and the '[Philosophical] Transactions [of the Royal Society]' there is nothing to prevent Gill presenting them with his volumes. The suggestion of presenting earlier volumes of the 'Transactions' will have to be laid before the Library Committee.
