TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor H H Turner, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date13 May 1898
DescriptionSaw Mr Wesley this morning and have been down to the printers and obtained more precise particulars which modify the rough estimate made when he was here. In reply to enquiry in letter, the cost of [stroking] off an additional 1000 copies of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' comes to approximately £2 per sheet. Has not seen either of the Secretaries but does not think it likely that they will object.
