TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to R M Brereton, Woodstock, Oregon, USA
Date15 May 1911
Description'With reference to the subject of your letter of the 22nd ult[imo], I beg to say that so far we have not been able to trace anything by Lord Brereton on the subject of "water divining". We have looked through the old indexes of the early MS documents as well as the printed Transactions, but do not find any such entry as you desire, either under Brereton of under Springs, or Wate of Divining or other such heading, so that it looks as if the subject did not come before the Society. Should we come across anything later, I will let you know.'
