TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Arthur G Hatchett, Woodlands, 59 Charminster Road, Bournemouth
Date26 October 1912
DescriptionRegrets that the pressure of business has delayed his response relating to Hatchett's great grandfather's [Charles Hatchett] letters. From their description it seems unlikely that the Royal Society would make an offer for their purchase, but if he sends a list of the principal scientific correspondents, Harrison should be in a better position to judge whether the collection would be of interest to the Royal Society.
