TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr [Charles] Chree, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date1 May 1901
DescriptionHas not had time to look into his paper before, but now sees where the printing misunderstanding arose. Harrison assumed Chree would mark all the omissions required when he returned the revised manuscript as recommended in the Sectional Committee vote, hence he was not careful to note that the pages not to be printed were really so marked.

The paper was sent for printing without proper instructions, and they set up the whole of it. Apologizes for the oversight, and asks for the proof with the parts for omissions scored out.
