TitleCopy letter from [Robert William Frederick Harrison], to Messrs Drummond & Company
Date20 May 1898
DescriptionIt is true that the Company's messenger said that the alteration asked for would be a simple matter but the proof handed to him was marked with two queries and a request was given to answer before printing. The Royal Society is anxious to get the job done but also wants it done correctly. Please answer all queries in future and never print until directly instructed. If there are any mistakes in consequence of the company's oversight, they will be held responsible.
