TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Manager, Direct Photo-Engraving Company
Date28 October 1896
DescriptionHarrison is sending the approved proofs of plates for Mr [Joseph Norman] Lockyer's paper, and trusts the manager will get them printed and deliver them to the Society's printers, Messrs Harrison & Sons as quickly as possible.

Also trusts they will push on the Tsetse fly plates as fast as possible as the Report is much wanted.

There are still proofs of two plates of [Arthur Mason] Worthington's paper to be sent in and the proofs with lettering of [Francis] Gotch and [George James] Burch, are still in the Company's hands. Both of these matters are urgently wanted and Harrison asks them to be given prompt attention.
