TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Mason Worthington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date18 December 1896
DescriptionHarrison explains that they are sending proofs of series II, III, and VI. Series II shows what they can do with the two unsatisfactory figures, and they hope that Worthington may approve them.With regard to Series III, they send two fresh proofs with the old proof for comparison. Series VII was posted the previous day. The other series are completed, and Harrison asks that he return the others with final instructions, and also that he inform them of the number of private copies he requires.

Harrison also asks that Worthington return all originals he has with instructions for the engravers regarding how much lettering is to appear on the plates themselves. They believe he also has proofs of text in his hands.
