TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr W [William] N [Napier] Shaw FRS
Date30 May 1910
Description'Dear Sir,
Daily Weather Report.
In answer to your enquiry respecting the half-yearly volumes of the above, I beg to say that Sir Joseph Larmor is of opinion that under existing conditions there volumes are no longer desirable in the Society's Library seeing that they are of little service here, that our space is very limited, and that the volumes are generally accessible.
I am therefore to return, with thanks, the first volume for 1909, just received.
I am further to offer to return our set of back volumes so far as available, should you express your willingness to receive them.'
