TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Abbott Herdman, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 November 1906
DescriptionIn reply to Herdman's note of 31 October with an application from the Birmingham Natural History Society, he thinks the whole question of the distribution of the Ceylon Report had better wait until it is completely published. There is a very large accumulation of copies of this publication in the Society's hands and it must be disposed of in some way. Considering the very great cost of this work, he would have thought that special efforts ought to be made to obtain a sale for it, but a wide gratuitous distribution would practically destroy a sale.
