TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Diederik Johannes Korteweg, Vondelstraat, 104, Amsterdam
Date2 October 1896
DescriptionAcknowledges receipt of Korteweg's letter of the 28th September with corrected proof of the verbatim report of the recent [Catalogue] conference and a copy of Korteweg's own report to the Netherlands Government, which Harrison is sending on to Dr Armstrong.

Regarding Korteweg's request for further copies of the report, the report is still under correction and as a considerable number of delegates have to be communicated with, some of them at great distances, it will probably not be possible to obtain a complete revise of it for some weeks. Harrison shall be happy to send further copies of the uncorrected proof, which Korteweg has already seen, if useful.
