TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons, St Martin's Lane
Date10 February 1897
DescriptionHarrison has received a note from "Nature" to inform him that they have not received the usual postcard of the week's papers to be read at the Royal Society, and he awaits an explanation from Harrison & Sons. He also asks that they explain why the alteration of the title of Dr Willey's paper does not appear in the announcement of that week's papers advertised in the "Times", as it was marked on the returned proof on Saturday, and had been carried to the proof which they sent on Monday.

He emphasises that the wording of the weekly postcard and the advertisement of papers should always follow the last proof sent to them of their notice of papers, and this should be strictly followed.
