TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Francis Wall Oliver
Date18 April 1904
DescriptionHarrison lists the estimates they have received for the collotype and lithograph plates for Oliver's joint paper, as requested by Dr Scott. With regard to the collotype plates, Harrison states that Scott has suggested Morgan & Kidd, but he recommends for financial reasons that the Stereoscopic Company would be preferable, especially as they have found their work equal to that of Morgan & Kidd, though he will await Oliver's decision. He proposes they proceed with Highley for the lithograph plates as his estimate is lower and they expressed a preference for him anyway.
