TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date19 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison writes following the printers action in response to his memorandum requesting that Professor Edwin Lankester's address on their Proceedings of the Royal Society list be changed to Turloe Place. He omitted to remind them that Lankester's Proceedings had been sent to the Librarian of Exeter College, Oxford, and the change of address meant a cancelling of this arrangement, which would be on their institutions list.

Lankester has written to ask where his copies of Proceedings are, as he has not received any. Harrison requests that they stop sending Proceedings to Exeter College, and begin sending them to Lankester at Thurloe Place. He asks for an explanation.
