TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mr Charles Dury, Secretary, Cincinnati Society of Natural History, 212 Broadway, Cincinnati, USA
Date11 April 1913
Description'We obtain your Journal by purchase through Messrs Wesley & Sons, Essex Street, Strand. Recently we received from them a copy of No £ of Vol XXI. This copy is very much cut down, so much so as to be practically useless for bidning. It measures only 7 and a half C 5 and five eighths, while our copy of No 2 measures 9 and a quarter X 6 and one eighths.
I write this to enquire whether it would be possible for us to be favoured with a full-size copy. We should be much obliged if this could be done and on receipt would immediately mail you the cut-down copy in return.
I write thus direct to you as Messrs Wesley regret they are themselves unable to assist us.'
