TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Bliss Sands & Company
Date23 July 1898
DescriptionThe Society has no copy of Sir A Geikie's work on 'Ancient Volcanoes of Great Britian' and cannot trace the blocks to which the Messrs refer. Asks for a reference to the original papers in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' or the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. Will then have pleasure in ordering the Society' printers to make cliches.
