TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Mason Worthington, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date13 October 1899
DescriptionIs in receipt of Worthington's paper and is proceeding with the printing and the preliminary steps for the production of the plates. Will consult the engraver promptly regarding the blocks. Notes that in the usual course drawings would not be made from photographs and drawing which would involve wood-engraving would make the cost higher than the amount allowed. Asks exactly what Worthington's wishes are.

They will want all the negatives of the photographs which are to be reproduced, and perhaps the lantern slides too.
