TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs E Edkins & Company
Date29 April 1897
DescriptionWith reference to the Messrs estimate for plates of Dr [Dukinfield Henry] Scott's paper,he cannot see his way to accept a price so considerably in advance of that quoted hitherto.

The usual price the Society pays for plates in collotype or similar process is £4-10-0 a plate, and never exceeds £5 even in exceptional circumstances.

Shall be glad to hear that the Messrs are willing to execute the work under reference at a price not exceeding £5 a plate.
