TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Executors of the late James Hibbert
Date24 October 1904
DescriptionHarrison presents his compliments to the Executors, and acknowledges the receipt of the book Quarere Invenire aeternum. The book, however, hardly falls within the categories which the Royal Society includes upon its shelves, and seems more appropriate to the Royal Academy of arts.
