TitleCopy letter from A H White, to B H Chamberlain, Secretary of the Asiatic Society of Japan, Tokyo
Date31 October 1888
DescriptionWhite records that they received yesterday part two of volume 16 of the 'Transactions of the Asiatic Society of Japan', but lists the numerous deficiencies in their collection. If they were despatched, the Royal Society never received them, possibly due to the parcel wrappers becoming detached from the volumes. White records that he would be grateful to receive the missing copies, and enquiries as to whether they are receiving the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' safely.
