TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr W Griggs, Peckham
Date19 December 1900
DescriptionWould be glad to hear from Griggs in reply to his letter of 10 December as he is anxious to have the matter of the two plates for the colour vision report settled. Does not understand Griggs' reference to a modification of the pattern since the first edition. Is not aware of any modification having been authorized from the Society. Asks to see the patterns Griggs has worked from before deciding whether to accept Griggs' work, and would be pleased to have the matter settled by Christmas.
