TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Charles Scott Sherrington, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date7 January 1898
DescriptionHas posted proofs of Sherrington's large 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' paper. Owing to some misunderstanding the figures have been printed from wood instead of electros. The printers fear that some of the finer dotted lines will print thick and solid. Asks if there are any figures which Sherrington would prefer to have printed from electros. Asks for the proof to be returned as early as possible. Proofs of the plate are already with Sherrington.
