TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Comptroller, Stationary Office
Date22 December 1905
DescriptionHarrison asks if they have any remaining copies of 'Observations on Days of Unusual Magnetic Disturbance made at the British Colonial Magnetic Observatories', published in 1843 by the Stationary Office and printed for the Government under the supervision of Colonel Sabine. One copy was presented to the Royal Society and resides in their Library.

Professor Drygalski, head of the German Antarctic Expedition has recently requested a copy to assist him in working out the results of the most recent expedition to the Antarctic, and Harrison wonders if the Stationary Office might be able to supply a copy for the Royal Society to send to Drygalski.
