TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Mason Worthington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date20 October 1896
DescriptionAfter many reminders the engravers have today brought in fresh proofs of Worthington's photographs which Harrison is sending by this post. Harrison thinks these pulls show up better on the surface paper than on the plain and in spite of the objections as to folding, he would be inclined to print them on surface paper. He also thinks them a distinct improvement on the previous ones.

The engravers would be glad to see the lantern slides and will do their best to bring collotypes up to them, so that, if Worthington can spare them again, it might be as well to let them see them.

The engravers promise to deliver the remaining proofs shortly.
