TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [George] Carey Foster, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 October 1913
DescriptionOn return from his holiday Harrison found eight replies to the questions which, with Foster's consent, he submitted to the Library Committee before the vacation. As this leaves very few members outstanding, and of those Foster is one, Harrison suggests that if he would vote he may act on the decisions. Sending a memo of the result of the opinions given on the applications [no enclosures]. If he regards the case of the Mexican Library too doubtful, it can be reserved for when the Committee meets.
