TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to G A Grierson, CIE, Rathfarnham
Date25 June 1909
Description'Dear Sir,
I very much regret that by an accident your letter relating to the Pandit Sudtkara Dvivedi has remained so long unanswered.
I assume that the works which he desires to present to our Library are in English. If in an Oriental language, I fear they would receive scant attention from the users of this Library; but in the former case I shall be happy to receive and to lay before the Library Committee any books, of a strictly scientific nature, which the Pandit may be good enough to send; and if he desires to write a letter with them it could be addressed to the President, or to the Secretaries, or to myself.'
