TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr P [Peter] C [Chalmers] Mitchell, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date26 February 1909
Description'Dear Dr Mitchell,
In reply to your note of yesterday and in confirmation of my short conversation with you on Tuesday, I send you an advance proof of the list of current serials in our Library, which is under revision by a Sub-Committee of the Library Committee.
I am trying to arrange a meeting of that Sub-Committee for next week, and as the subject you are interested in will form part of their deliberations, I see no reason to doubt their competence to delegate one of their number to confer with representatives of you and other societies on the subject of concerted action.'
