TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir G Baden-Powell, 114 Eaton Square, S.W.
Date19 May 1898
DescriptionSince receiving Baden-Powell's note, enclosed by Mr Shackleton, requesting additional copies of Baden-Powell's Eclipse paper, Harrison has made further enquiries at the printers. Further separate copies of this paper would spoil the completeness of 50 copies of the volume of the 'Transactions [of the Royal Society]', the only remaining sheets now being those which are put together in volume form. 100 private copies were delivered to Baden-Powell and so there should be a remaining 50 volumes in his possession somewhere if he says he only received 50. Would like to assist but is very difficult since received request so late.
