TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr John Allen Harker, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date24 November 1899
DescriptionProfessor Carey Foster yesterday sent the proof of Harker's paper, the copy now being sent for Harker's correction. Foster pointed out that the references and numbering of the figures appears confused. Harrison hopes Harker will carefully correct this and all other doubtful points. Harrison applied to the printers for the manuscript and was surprised to learn Harker had it. Harker should certainly have let the Society know this.
