TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr William Napier Shaw, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 January 1906
DescriptionIn response to his letter of 2 January, Harrison states he had understood that copies of the Southern Cross Observations were placed with Shaw with full discretion as to distribution, therefore he may send a copy to Justus Perthes' Geographische Anstalt Gotha if he believes it to be a suitable place.

Concerning ventilation of Burlington House, the Office of Works have sent a few drawings, but they are only plans on a small scale and so of no use for Shaw's purpose. He has enquired again requesting working plans, and asserts that such drawings must exist.
