TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Andrew & Sleigh
Date11 November 1898
DescriptionReferring to the Messrs letter of the 2 November regarding the reproduction of the coloured spectra plates, as they are not sanguine as to the result of the process and as the Society hardly feels justified incurring the expense of an experiment, Harrison thinks they had better discontinue negotiations regarding this particular work. Will be glad to apply to the Messrs on the next suitable occasion.
