TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Frederick Orpen Bower, Fellow of the Royal Society, 45 Kersland Terrace, Hillhead, Glasgow
Date17 November 1897
DescriptionAcknowledges Bower's letter of the 15th and the parcel of drawings and proof of Bower's paper on Marattiaceae. Is sorry the illustrations do not satisfy Bower. Explains why he thought they were safe in placing the illustrations in the hands of West, Newman and Company. In this case the name and quotation of the firm were submitted to the Chairman of the Botany Committee, whose approval was obtained before the work was placed in their hands.
