TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to D Cockerell
Date17 June 1909
Description'My dear Sir,
Referring to our earlier correspondence on the subject of storage of our stock, and to your letter of April 20 thereon, could you give me some idea on the following two points:-
(1) Would it cost any more (excluding of course the cost of postage) if you despatched any of the stock that was called for direct to the applicant instead of sending it up here?
(2) Can you form any idea of the cost of transferring our stock from its existing habitat to you place at Letchworth, taking it as amounting to about £250 parcels, weighing about 4.2 tons.'
