TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Mason Worthington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date22 December 1896
DescriptionHarrison acknowledges Worthington's letter to Professor Arthur Rucker on Rucker's behalf, and also acknowledges Worthington's two notes to him. He explains that the particulars, proofs and silver prints referred to in the letter to Rucker had only just arrived, and so Rucker was unable to look into the subject prior to his departure from London for Christmas, so the matter will need to be raised again upon his return.

Harrison has seen Mr Cole, who intends to write to Worthington regarding an 'ambiguity in the observations on certain of the plates'. He further notes that, unfortunately, the Manager of the Photo-Engraving Company was unable to get to the Royal Society in time to see Cole.
