TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Messrs Dulau & Co. Ltd.; 34 Margaret Street, W
Date13 December 1919
DescriptionRegarding an explanation given about charges for Italian periodicals, Harrison finds the explanation 'does not seem to meet the position, as it appears to us.' Advises given the considerable cost, he cannot authorise subscriptions to continue on the current basis, and asks for the 1920 subscriptions to be cancelled, and there to be no renewal without special instruction. Advises that in the meantime the Royal Society will try other channels to get foreign periodicals.
