TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mrs Manlove
Date21 June 1910
DescriptionHarrison writes that there is no reason why Mrs Manlove should feel hurt by Harrison's observations that her daughter's statements were of a serious nature. Mrs Manlove's statements [that conditions working in the Royal Society library have made her daughter ill] are very serious in nature and could amount to a charge against the Society. Harrison will investigate the complaint but reminds Mrs Manlove that it is not peculiar, nor conclusive evidence of unhealthy conditions of work, to be tired out at the end of the day; and if Mrs Manlove wishes to make enquiries about the room in which her daughter works, they should be addressed to the superintendent of the room.
