TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Ernst Ehlers, Der Vorsitzende Secretar, Die Konigliche Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften, Göttingen [Germany]
Date18 December 1903
DescriptionHarrison explains that the Catalogue of Scientific Papers volume 12, 1902, was dispatched to the University of Göttingen earlier that year, but was refused due to freight charges. He further notes that the Royal Society would happily send the volume in continuation, as previously, but will not pay the carriage, explaining that the expense of production prohibits them from doing more that presenting the volumes to societies and academies on the Special Exchange list.
