TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Secretary, Linnean Society of New South Wales
Date14 September 1905
DescriptionIn making a review of the past years Library business Harrison finds there has been an oversight in carrying out a decision of the Library Committee in favour of a grant of the Royal Society's publications to the Linnean Society of NSW. On the application of Professor Liversidge it was decided last autumn to place the Linnean Society of NSW on the list for receiving the biological series of the 'Philosphical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. The necessary instructions do not appear to have been given to the printers however. Has issued instructions to have the Linnean Society of NSW placed on the list and to send a separate copy of the paper on the eruption of Mt Soufriere in St Vincent, if still in print. Apologizes for the delay in this matter.
