TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to the University Librarian; McGill University, Montreal, Canada
Date3 March 1930
DescriptionDiscusses the charge for buying extra private copies of the paper by Professor [Norman John] Berrill. Also discusses the matter of transporting the parcels of the reprints to Canada, and high transatlantic shipping charges. Hopes that the information given in this letter will help to explain the situation and make it clear that the Royal Society's principle is merely to recover their own printing and transmission expenses, not to profit.
