TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to G L Raymond, c/o Messrs Putnam's Sons
Date27 September 1909
DescriptionPutnam's Sons has sent a box containing eight volumes of his works on artistic subjects and poetry, which he has been kind enough to gift to the Royal Society. Without wishes to appear ungrateful, Harrison explains that the Library is exclusively devoted only to scientific material, and shelf space is already limited. If he would indicate which institution he wishes the volumes be sent, Harrison will transfer them.
