TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor James Alfred Ewing, Fellow of the Royal Society, Royal Naval College, Greenwich
Date28 February 1904
DescriptionHarrison explains that Mr Whuthars has permission to republish in a book figure 2 in Ewing's Bakerian Lecture as published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, volume 192. The company who executed the illustrations is no longer in business, so he asks if Ewing could send a negative or spare photograph in, to be lent to the publisher John Murray, to allow the figure to be reproduced.
