TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr Erich von Drygalski, The University of Munich
Date24 May 1910
In reply to your letter of the 19th instant, I am directed to inform you than all the Natural History volumes of reports on the "Discovery" South Polar Expedition have been published by the British Museum (Natural History Department) and that they are not in any way at the disposal of the Royal Society. I am to suggest therefore that you make application to the Director of the British Museum (Natural History Department), Cromwell Road, London, London, SW for the volumes you desire to receive, and I have every hope that they will be presented to you in due course.'
