TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Drummond and Company
Date19 July 1897
DescriptionAccepts the Messrs estimates for the plates for Swan's figures, forwards the originals and will be glad if the blocks can be prepared as soon as possible. Would like them to be arranged into four unfolded demy ocatvo plates. The margins of the large figures may be trimmed. The paper sent as a sample is satisfactory but he would be glad if the blocks could be printed on a thinner paper.
