TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to J S Smart, the University, Glasgow
Date11 September 1915
Description'I am afraid we cannot help you now in the matter of our Oldenburg MSS, because all our archives and documents are now carefully stowed away for security in our strong-room in the basement and are practically inaccessible. I fear this state of things must continue for the duration of the war.
If you care to call and speak about the matter I shall of course be glad to give you what information I can, but I fear that would not assist you much. I rather fancy the letter to Milton have been printed already or at least examined, for our catalogue refers to his Epistolas Familiares.'
