TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Waterlow & Sons
Date22 September 1897
DescriptionHarrison regrets to say that the copying press which the Messrs repaired for the Society last June has again cracked right across the bed. During the past two months of the Society's vacation the press has had little use and he cannot but think therefore that the fracture is due to some defective material or to improper setting on the stand. In these circumstances Harrison thinks it should be set right without further charge and in any case shall be obliged by the Messrs sending someone to inspect the press as soon as possible.
