TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Joseph Norman Lockyer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date23 February 1897
DescriptionDr [Michael] Foster tells Harrison that Lockyer has obtained some new process for multiplying typewritten documents and if so, Harrison would be much obliged by his letting him know the name of it and whether it is available to the public, in order that he may judge whether it would be worth while to adopt it at the Society sometimes in lieu of printing.

Harrison has something in hand now that he requires copies of for the use of the Council and would therefore be glad, if it is not troubling Lockyer too much , to have some particulars as soon as possible.
