TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to [Messrs Harrison & Sons]
Date28 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison writes concerning printing charges for Proceedings of the Royal Society number 485.

He states that it would be preferable to charge the minutes of meetings to the Year Book account rather than to Proceedings, as they form part of the Year Book and are only in Proceedings for prompt information. Contrary to what has happened, he asks that the Index Slips be included in the charge for each number as they are issued nowhere else.

He asks why they have charged for two blank pages in 485, but supposes they are what they would term a half sheet.
