TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to S A Saunder, Sec RAS
Date4 May 1910
Description'Dear Mr Saunder,
In response to your letter of the 25th ult[imo], to Sir Joseph Larmor, I had the pleasure of sending you a copy of the Index to the Phil[osophical] Trans[actions of the Royal Society] from 1781 to 1820; but on looking at your letter again I fear I may not have interpreted your request fully. You ask us to give you "a copy of the index from 1781 to 1820 of the continuation from 1821 to 1830". Your letter went out into the Office with instructions to send what you desired; but possibly from the omission of a word in your letter, only the first named Index was sent. There is a continuation Index 1821 - 1830, and if you wish for that also we can send it you, as we have some spare copies. If you or Mr Wesley will send word across the quadrangle, a cop shall be looked out.'
