TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Secretary. R Accademia delle Scienze, Bologna, Italy
Date19 February 1908
DescriptionHarrison received the R Accademia's circular on the subject of exchange of publications. The Royal Society has long maintained an exchange with the R Accademia of Bologna and hopes to continue this in the future. However the Moral Sciences do not fall within the province of the Royal Society, and moreover the library is so crowded that Harrison regrets that they cannot hold out any hope of an exchange being instituted between the Society and the new class of Moral Science. As to the sample which were sent Harrison will hold them at their disposal and should the R Accademia wish Harrison will have them dispatched to Bologna.
