TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir D [David] Bruce CB, FRS
Date19 May 1909
DescriptionBagshawe handed Harrison Bruce's letter asking to get a paper by Dr Landois from the Royal Society Library. That paper is bound up in a volume of the "Zeitschrift fur Wissenschaftliche Zoologie" and is out of print, therefore the book cannot be sent out of the Library to Uganda. Harrison has read with great interest all the things Bruce has sent over and has done his little best to promote the accomplishment of what Bruce wanted from the Colnial Office. Harrison suggests a sailing trip and gives his family's regard to Bruce's wife.
