TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W Shackleton, Royal College of Science, South Kensington, S.W.
Date27 April 1898
DescriptionRegarding Shackleton's letter on the subject of copies of the Eclipse 1896 paper by Sir G Baden-Powell, Harrison finds that 100 copies were ordered for the author in November so he ought to have 100 rather than, the previously mentioned, 50. If all 100 copies were delivered, Harrison is doubtful that a further 50 copies can be produced and the type is not kept standing. Will ask for confirmation of this from the printers.
