TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Mason Worthington, Fellow of the Royal Society, 21 Stoke Terrace, Devonport
Date24 September 1896
DescriptionThe new proofs of Worthington's splash photographs have at last come in, after many promises from the engraving people. Harrison sends them off at once for Worthington's inspection. Worthington should note that plates in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' have to be folded and this enamelled paper folds very badly. The engravers say that have had considerable difficulty with the negatives which have a good many blemishes on them.
