TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor Francis Wall Oliver FRS
Date13 October 1910
Description'Dear Prof Oliver,
With reference to your letter of October 11, we have here five letters of Dr Nehemiah Grew written to Oldenburg, and Malpighi, two being dated from Coventry.
The letter are quite accessible, and there would be no difficulty in your consulting them during Library hours, but any person, not a Fellow, would require to have a note of introduction from you.
In the event of any material from the letters being found suitable for lecture purposes, such as you mention, it would be necessary to bring the matter before the Council. Your letter would, however, suffice to explain the project.'
