|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [William Abbott] Herdman, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
|[3 March 1906]
|Harrison notes with displeasure the number of volumes of the Pearl Fisheries Report being delivered to them, apparently intended as a permanent increase to the publications rapidly accumulating in their storerooms. He reports that he was overuled when suggesting a smaller edition, and suggests that they may need to reduce the stock by wider distribution than has hitherto occurred, and asks that he consider the question and whether the Colonial Office may be able to assist with distrubution.
Harrison states that due to the publication of the work being settled largely outside the Royal Society, he has seen little of it in comparison to usual, so he has only been made aware of the situation due to a report on the congested state of the storerooms.
