TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to P G Ralfe
Date25 January 1905
DescriptionIn reply to Ralfe's two postcards, they have consulted the manuscript catalogue of the Society's museum but it has provided no fresh details. The bird catalogue section of the manuscript contains practically nothing more than the printed catalogue. Quotes the entry under 'Puffin'. There is no Manx Puffin quoted as such. The puzzle about Ray's statement still remains. The records of the Society's museum do not bear on Ray's statement.
