TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W C Allen, Librarian, Exeter College, Oxford
Date19 December 1898
DescriptionWith reference to their recent correspondence, Harrison finds after a conversation with Professor [Edwin Ray] Lankester that it is evidently due to some mistake on the part of the printerd that the 'Porceedings of the Royal Society' series has not reached Allen regularly. Lankester wishes his set of 'Proceedings' to continue to go to the library of Exeter College and Harrison is therefore giving instructions to the printers to continue this arrangement and will have the deficiencies mentioned in Allen's earlier letter looked out and forwarded.
