TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to W M Webb, The Selborne Society
Date16 February 1912
Description'Your request for the loan of the Gilbert White letters was laid before the Council yesterday and I regret to say that they could not see their way to sanction the loan of the MSS as being against their policy in these matters.
