TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor J Darwin, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date[4 May 1898]
DescriptionIs not sure what the author proposes with regards the plates. Plates I and II appear to have already been lithographed and prints are enclosed with the originals. Plate III is made up partly of drawings and partly of microphotographs, a combination difficult to reproduce for printing satisfactorily. Important that Harrison should know so as to get an accurate estimate of cost of the paper for the Council. Asks for assistance in clarifying matter.
