TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Herbert Church, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 August 1907
DescriptionDr George Kunz of the American Museum of Natural History has written saying that he has learned from Church that the Society has in its archives a letter from Dr Martin Lister on the pearl fisheries in the North of Ireland and one of the pearl fisheries in France. It seems Kunz wishes to have photographs taken of one of more pages and of signatures. The reference that Church gives to the Letter Books are 'L5, 20 to L5, 78' but they do not find the particular letters Kunz wants on general examination. Asks if Church has the exact reference.
