TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr J A Cushman, Boston Society of Natural History
Date28 June 1909
Description'Dear Sir,
Your request for a copy of the Foraminifera volume of the Challenger Reports was sent here by Sir John Murray with a strong recommendation that the Government should be moved to present you with a copy, and the Committee of the Royal Society which advises the Government on this subject, were fully prepared to forward the recommendation. Unfortunately, however, HM Stationery Officer informs us that the stock of the Foraminifera volume is exhausted, and I fear now the only resource for you is a second-hand book-seller. I much regret being obliged to make so unfavourable response.'
