TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Herr Professor Dr Georg von Neumayer, Hohenzoller Strasses, 9, Neustadt an der Haardt
Date10 February 1906
DescriptionHarrison explains that they have not yet succeeded in locating the manuscript observations taken at Melbourne, 1858-1864. He speculates that General Sabine, as President of Society at that time, may have had them, but he cannot confirm this as Sabine died more than 20 years previously. As they are due to undertake an investigation of the publications in their store rooms, they will take the opportunity to renew their search for the items.
