TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date17 December 1907
DescriptionHarrison writes concerning the numbers of Proceedings of the Royal Society that Dr Debus reported missing (A530, 532, 533, 534 and B534) and Harrison & Sons' note of 3 December, and explains that Debus has enquired at the Post Office at Cassel but cannot find any information from that source. He expresses surprise that five consecutive numbers have not reached their destination, and shares Debus' opinion that it may be due to an oversight on the part of Harrison & Sons.

Harrison requests a careful enquiry into the matter.
