TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Dobinson Halliburton, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date25 November 1907
DescriptionHarrison will respond to the question of the Royal Society's supply of medical journals later, but he confirms that they have The Lancet and The British Medical Journal presented to them, and as far as he is aware they are located on a table in the Library. He wishes to know what worker has complained of their absence, and why the complaint was not addressed directly to Harrison or the Assistant Librarian.

He explains that the congestion in the Library due to lack of shelf room is considerable and presents continual difficulties for arrangement, so the adding of serials to those already received is almost impossible to consider, unless very urgent. They do however have a suggestion book open to Fellows for recommended additions to the Library.
