TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mr Vittalu Krishnaswair, South Agraharani, Periyakulam, Madura District, British India
Date18 March 1908
Description'Dear Sir,
The application contained in your letter of February 26 is so comprehensive that I fear it will be impossible to assist you from here. I know of no published modern bibliography of works in methods of science; but you will probably obtain useful information on the subject if you apply to one of the scientific publishers or booksellers, such as Macmillan & Co., St Martin's Street, London, or to Wesley & Son, Essex Street, Strand, London. The Year Book of the Royal Society can be had of Messrs Harrison & Sons, St Martin's Lane, London, WC, at the published price of 5/-.'
