TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [George Howard] Darwin, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date19 July 1901
DescriptionHe has spoken to Harrison & Sons regarding Darwin's strong objection to their Mathematical printing. The firm expressed their readiness to take on board the wishes of authors regarding space, but stated that different authors have different views. They appear to be working under a system set down when Lord Rayleigh was Secretary.

Enclosing proofs of two alternative formulae for consideration [no enclosure]. Asks if he wants his paper delayed by this matter, or to proceed with printing and provide the firm with examples of the style Darwin has in mind.
