TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date20 November 1897
DescriptionIn making up the accounts for the year, Harrison finds so much discrepancy between the expenses for printing and those for paper in the publications of the Society that he thinks it must arise from the variation in the stocks of paper in the Messrs hands at the beginning of the Society's financial year. Asks for a statement of the stocks of the Messrs paper which were in their hands at the beginning of November 1897, and at the beginning of the current month, if possible by Monday evening.
