TitleCopy letter from A H White, to Mr E H Frost
Date9 August 1901
DescriptionSends proofs of Dr Scott's collotype plates [not enclosed]. Scott passes plates 40 to 42 for press, subject to the corrections marked. Plates 38 and 39 must be seen again and Frost should have further proofs of these prepared and submitted to Scott as soon as possible.

Scott is much annoyed at the delay and at Frost not returning the originals. Asks for some explanation and that Frost make up for lost time. As it is White is afraid they will not be able to give Frost any more of Scott's work and such delays will hardly encourage the Society to give him any more work. Asks in particular that Frost return the originals to Scott which are now done with.
