TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor E Arber
Date6 October 1910
Description'My dear Sir,
I have your letter of September 30, but I am afraid now there is no chance of my Library Committee taking the Term Catalogues. Our Library is more crowded than ever in spite of our having absorbed a large storeroom in the basement, and the Committee are increasingly rigid in limiting acquisitions to strictly scientific works, using the term "scientific" in its narrow, modern sense.'
