TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs West, Newman & Company
Date12 July 1899
DescriptionThe Society are printing Captain Abney's paper but it has no plates. As to the three other papers, Boyce and Warrington is being done by process, Marshall Ward's have been given to another firm whose estimate was slightly lower than the Messrs, and MacMunn's paper is still pending.

The Society will doubtless soon have further work for the Society. Regarding the Burch plates they have not heard from the author and must assume he is satisfied.
