TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Erskine Murray
Date8 June 1898
DescriptionWith reference to Murray's letter about the diagrams in his paper, have made enquiries but cannot locate the original of the diagram which thinks may have gone out from the printers with the proofs. Could possibly be with Lord Kelvin.

Harrison does not understand how Murray did not see a proof of the diagram since a block was sent to him. Perhaps there was a mistake by the printers.
