TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date6 June 1904
DescriptionHe states that they may charge the Royal Society the three shillings for electros of two figures from the Ceylon pearl Oysters report supplied to Nature for a review. He believed that he had already informed them of this, and if so the account should not have been sent to Nature again. He suggests the misunderstanding arose from electros being supplied on the belief they were to be used for Nature's own purpose, whereas they in fact wanted the original blocks to be loaned. In the unlikely event of such a case arising again, they must remember to distinguish between these two options.
