TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to W Cunningham, The Athenaeum, Liverpool
Date14 April 1915
Description'Replying to your recent enquiry on behalf of Professor Herdam, I do not think there is any regulation to prevent a Fellow of the Society availing himself more than once of the privilege of buying past volume of our publications at a third of the published price; but speaking for myself, I rather think it would be contrary to the spirit of the concession made to Fellows, unless indeed it were quite clear that the volumes were required personally by the Fellow himself.'
