TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr T P Collings, Surrey Chambers, 172 Strand, W.C.
Date31 March 1897
DescriptionRegarding Taylor Jones' paper for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]', Harrison shall be glad to know whether Collings can reduce it to some extent. Thinks the balance of 48 shillings for three plane curves seems to him rather a high estimate, especially with regard to the extreme simplicity of one of the figures, which is nothing more than a straight line and seems to require plotting belond that of the few points marked by stars.
