TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Robert Henry Scott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date19 November 1901
DescriptionFinds they do not have the 'Dialogue of Wren' which Scott left at the Society yesterday, though they do have the original Spanish work of Monardes containing a chapter on iron from which the English version has apparently been prepared. Therefore they will accept the 'Dialogue' for the library. Asks if Scott can obtain any particulars of the work of which the 'Dialogue' appears to be folios 139-163. Thinks it is Frampton's translation of Monardes, 1596.
