TitleCopy letter from A H White, to The Direct Photo Engravers
Date18 August 1894
DescriptionThe Society has today this morning received three spectrum blocks and proofs with bill for same and is rather perplexed to know what paper these belong to, as there are no originals accompanying them and the Engravers give no indication of any name. Asks them in future to quote the name of the author, the number of the paper, and the publication. Also mentions that the blocks were carelessly packed, the zinc being exposed through the wrapping paper in one place. Asks also what the proper address to write to the the Engravers is.
