|Date||19 March 1910|
|Description||'Dear Sir, |
In reply to your request for an exchange of publications, I regret to inform you that the Royal Society's Library is much pressed for accommodation and has therefore to restrict its acquisitions almost entirely to the field of pure science.
We are therefore unable to add further to our agricultural literature, but beg to thank you for your offer of exchange and the accompanying volumes. As we cannot establish an exchange I take pleasure in returning the two volumes to your address.'
