TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs B F Stevens and Brown
Date2 January 1901
DescriptionIn reply to the Messrs further enquiry concerning the reprinting of the 'Report on Colour Blindness', the difficulty which is delaying the work has arisen in connection with the printing of the plates. The lithographer failed to reproduce the plates to the Society's satisfaction and as absolute accuracy is of the highest importance they have entrusted the work to another firm.

The letterpress is ready and the work on the plates will be pressed on with all possible speed. If a small number of copies would be of service, the Society could supply 15 or so from a small number of advance copies they have. The Society would be glad to present these to the Bureau of Medicine at Washington, if of service.
