TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Edgar Harrison
Date26 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison forwards a Royal Society circular, and demands an explanation from whomever is responsible for this 'quite impossible piece of printing', and expresses despair at the printer's staff regarding the style of setting up which produces a poor impression on the Royal Society's staff. He requests that the circular is put in some decent form and that a proof be sent as soon as possible, also stating 'observe the fancy type at the heading'.
