TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Agent General for the Cape of Good Hope
Date21 June 1900
DescriptionThe Royal Society is greatly obliged to the Cape Government for their courtesy in sending the volumes of 'Proceedings of the Cape Parliament and Appendices' but such matter does not come within the range of the Royal Society's Library, which has to be limited due to space. Asks the Agent General to advise his Government of this and suggests he name the Royal Statistical Society, instead of the Royal Society instead as a suitable recipient if the volumes are not already sent to them.
