TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to S Henshaw, Librarian, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States of America
Date16 October 1902
DescriptionIn reply to Henshaw's letter requesting a supply to the museum to certain back numbers of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', the large number asked for makes it difficult for Harrison to comply with the request. The numbers asked for extend from 1873 to 1889 and run into 26 volumes.

With reference to Henshaw's kind offer regarding the Museums own deficiencies, Harrison finds the Society's set of 'Bulletins' appears complete but of the 'Memoirs', volumes 20, 21 and 22 appear never to have been received and for volume 23 they have no general title for the volume, but only the parts one and two. If the Museum could supply these deficiencies Harrison would endeavour to supply in return such 'Proceedings' as might make an equitable exchange.
