TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date5 July 1907
DescriptionHarrison writes to explain that as Joseph Ernest Petavel is a Fellow of the Royal Society, they cannot charge him more than 15 shillings per volume of Proceedings of the Royal Society, particularly as Fellows of the Physical Society may buy back volumes at the rate of 13 shillings and four pence per volume. He asks that they accept Petavel's cheque for the amount sent.
