TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Schooling, Fairholme, Christcurch Road, Surbiton
Date20 December 1897
DescriptionSchooling's application on behalf of the Chamberlain Observatory, Denver, Colorado, for the presentation of the Royal Society's publications to that Observatory has been laid before the Library Committee. In view of the large demands made upon the Society's publications and of the comparatively small number of distinctly astronomical treatises among its publications, they have not seen their way to advise the Council to accede to Schooling's request.
