TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to, Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date1 April 1903
DescriptionHarrison demands an immediate explanation as to why the portrait of Dr Marcet was inserted in the whole edition of the Year Book, a serious departure of instructions. After it was discovered that the portrait had been inserted as the frontispiece, Mr Towle spoke with Edgar Harrison who admitted the error, but yet the portrait has appeared in the whole edition. This has ramifications for obituary notices, as the portrait cannot be included as the stock of plates has been exhausted.
