TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor E Arber, 26 Prior Road, Bedford Park, W.
Date25 June 1908
DescriptionOffice business has prevented Harrison from obtaining a decision on Arber's offer of his 'Term Catalogues'. The form of his question however, prompts Harrison to remind him that the volumes voluntarily submitted by him on approval are not 'supplied' in the ordinary sense, and that the question of purchasing them for the Library is entirely open. However it is extremely doubtful that they would be considered appropriate for the Library.
