TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to the Librarian, United States Department of Agriculture, Washington
Date24 January 1912
Description'In reply to your letter of January 5, I am directed by the President to say that the Royal Society being a private institution subsisting on the subscriptions of its members, and finding it difficult to discharge its numerous scientific obligations, he doubts whether the Council could entertain your application for two sets of Proceedings [of the Royal Society], gratis especially as there is no precedent for duplication the exchange issue. A second set can of course be purchased.'
