TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Le Bibliotecaire de L'Universite de Lyon
Date4 December 1899
DescriptionWith reference to the librarian's letter of the 27th November, it appears the Royal Society has already sent all the volumes of the '[Philosophical] Transactions [of the Royal Society]' that are due to the University of Lyons. It is possible the parcel may still be lying at the post office at Lyons, or that it may have gone by mistake to the Academie des Scoemces, Lyons. Harrison is writing to the Academy to see if it has a duplicate set.
