TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date14 April 1904
DescriptionHarrison thanks them for their letter of 31 March concerning increased charges for printing Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society and Proceedings of the Royal Society, but asks if the figures can be confirmed due to apparent inconsisistencies. For Transactions the new charge appears to be less rather than more than at present, and for Proceedings they appear to be proposing an almost 50 percent increase. He asks if these are the final figures. Harrison also states that he believes these changes will not be enforced until after the current volume.
