TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to L Newcombe
Date24 July 1912
DescriptionThanks him for his letter and the copy of the Catalogue marked with press marks. The Catalogue came in just in time to be put about the place during the [Royal Society's 250th Anniversary] celebrations, and although it was no doubt overshadowed by the more glory of the new 'Record' and facsimile Charter Book, Harrison is sure the value and excellence of Newcombe's work will impress itself upon the Fellows. It will be good of him to finish the Periodical Register when he comes back in August.
