TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Manager, Photo-Engraving Company
Date17 October 1896
DescriptionIn spite of repeated promises no further attention has been paid to the subject of Harrison's last letter concerning the [Arthur Mason] Worthington photographs. In the meantime Professor Worthington has needed to use the slides sent to the Society for the Company to see and they have had to be returned.

Harrison and Professor [Michael] Foster have examined the photographs and determined that better results ought to be produced from the negatives which produced these slides than the Company has yet reproduced.

Unless greater promptitude can be shown than the Company has exhibited in this matter, the Society will have to look elsewhere for the production of work of this class.
