TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Direct Photo-Engraving Company
Date3 October 1896
DescriptionProfessor [Arthur Mason] Worthington writes that he has still not received the proofs of the Series last sent on enamelled and on softer paper for comparison, so that he cannot come to a decision on the paper, but he says that in Series three there seems little gained by the harder paper. Worthington also says has has not yet received proofs of Series four.

Harrison returns proofs of Series three, eight and nine with Worthington's commends on them and marked with the lettering which he wishes to have inserted. Asks for the Company's early attention to these particulars.
