TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Librarian, Exeter College, Oxford
Date15 November 1898
DescriptionWith reference to the librarian's note of the 12th November mentioning the irregular receipt of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', the period covered is nearly two and a half years, during which no irregularity has been reported. Is afraid the Library Committee would not agree to supply the deficiencies as they cover so long a period. The dispatch of the 'Proceedings' is carried out by the printers, and it is very seldom the Society hears of any irregular delivery.
