TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Le Directeur delegue, Ministere des Colonies, Brussels
Date16 May 1911
Description'Your letter of the 11th instant has been forwarded here by our printers and in reply I have to thank you for your offer of the Bullentin Agricole du Congo Belge in exchange for the publications of the Royal Society, but am to say that the Library of the Society is so restricted by considerations of space to works of pure science, which form the principal interest of the Society, that I fear there is no likelihood of the Library Committee entertaining a proposal to exchange the publications of the Society for one so technical as the Bullentin Agricole du Congo Belge.'
