|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to J S Smart, the University, Glasgow|
|Date||11 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.'
