|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Karl Pearson, Fellow of the Royal Society|
|Date||23 May 1900|
|Description||Notes Pearson's request for two revised copies of his 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' paper. Apologizes there are so many errors in proof and requests return of manuscript in order to compare. |
Pearson's complaint that the printers altered the proofs as they went through the press is a serious charge, never previously brought by any author to Harrison's knowledge. Asks for examples complained of and will investigate. Will defer sending the proof for revise until he hears from Pearson.
