TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Thomas Edward Thorpe, Foreign Secretary, Royal Society
Date17 November 1903
DescriptionHas looked up the books and documents in the library relating to Dr Priestley and finds them to consist of the following bound papers: W Henry's 'An estimate of the philosophical character of Dr Priestley' and 'Dr Priestley's Laboratory, 1791', the latter reprinted from the 'Birmingham Weekly Post'. At the end of Yeats' paper are a large number of references to articles on Priestley about half of which are in the library, but the Society does not seem to have the autobiography.
