TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor G [Geroge] Carey Foster FRS
Date19 December 1911
Description'The enclosed application from Queensland University has arrived just after our Library Committee meeting; and, coming from such an important Colonial centre, it hardly seems right to let it stand over without attention until the Committee meets again. If you agree with me, will you approve my sending it round to the Committee to get their opinions by correspondence, and if the result is definite, authorise me to act upon it.'
