TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to G E Bullen, Hertfordshire County Museum, St Albans
Date27 September 1912
DescriptionSending a form of application for a grant from the Government Grant Fund. Harrison is much obliged by their kind offer to present their papers to the Library. He hopes he is not thought ungracious to say that the Library is already very crowded, and there is so much difficulty in finding space for the steady growth of the serial literature of science, that publications by private authors are generally not accepted.
