TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr Frost, Collotype & General Printing Company, 282 High Holborn, W.C.
Date20 May 1898
DescriptionA letter which Harrison addressed to Frost has been returned. The letter was important since it conveyed proofs of plates approved for press with an order for immediate printing. After investigation, the Post Office were unable to deliver the letter since there is no indication of Frost's firm at the address given. Therefore does not trust sending the proofs again by post but instead asks that Frost collects them. Wishes to speak to Frost on the subject of future communications.
