Date10 May 1901
DescriptionResponds to their letter explaining they could not deliver the parcel, as they do not know the address of Professor Darboux, by pointedly stating that Darboux is one of the most well know Professors in Paris, and if they had taken more care it would have been an easy matter. It is now too late for the contents to be useful, but Harrison will write to Darboux to let him know where the parcel is lying.
