TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to D Cockerell
Date21 December 1911
Description'Five or six volumes at least of the early Council Minutes of the Society in manuscript urgently want either rebinding or repairing, and I should like very much to get them put in hand soon. They are very important documents and therefore I do not like to send them all away together unless you could guarantee their being done and returned in a very short time, because we still refer to them.
Would you tell me the best was of dealing with them and of assuring that the greatest care will be taken of them while in your custody.'
