TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr G W Sorgenfrey
Date23 July 1912
DescriptionThe terms of sale of Herschel papers were settled by the Council of the Royal Society, which does not meet again until October. The edition is a limited one, and the book is of course known to astronomers and others who require it. The most that can be done is to send the book carriage paid as regards orders on the Continent. Messrs Dulau & Company have been instructed to that effect.

Letter is signed 'for Sir Joseph Larmor'.
