TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to James Chumley, Secretary, Lake Survey (Pullar Trust), Challenger Office, Edinburgh
Date19 April 1904
DescriptionHarrison responds to Chumley's enquiry on Sir John Murray's behalf, explaining that he may claim all parts of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, A and B series, published during the previous five years, but that his claim to the volumes beyond this period and since his election in 1896 has lapsed. A formal application to Council must be made in accordance with the terms of Statutes, chapter 13, section 6.

If Chumley informs them whether Murray wants both A and B series, or just B, they will forward the volumes due.
