TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Mason Worthington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 March 1897
DescriptionHarrison sends a line to explore the delay in furnishing Worthington with the set of lettered proofs asked for.

The engravers had to make up a fresh plate for Series VI on account of working from Worthington's original negatives. This took some little time. The engravers have shown the new plate, which on examination appears satisfactory and have now lettered it.

In about a week the engravers will furnish the complete set of lettered proofs, which shall be forwarded to Worthington at once. The Society has carefully checked all the lettering with the engravers. Presumes Worthington does not need to see his original sheets of prints again.
