TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons, 45 St Martin's Lane, Charing Cross, W.C.
Date13 March 1902
DescriptionThe delay over Professor Gamgee's proofs on Tuesday was very vexatious, and yet another example of how the Royal Society's work is too often delayed at their office. It was a simple job. It is not too much to ask for them to carry out the work given them promptly.

Requests an explanation about the proofs, and an assurance that they will take some steps to prevent such vexatious disappointments from happening again.
