TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Lamb & Company
Date4 January 1904 [1905]
DescriptionSending a sheet of the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' 1879, which the Committee thinks is suitable both in surface and tint for the standard of paper to be used in future for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' and 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. Harrison & Sons also approve that this gives the best results.

Asks if the Double Demy is of exactly the same quality and weight as the Double Medium. There seems to be a difference of texture. It is intended that in the future that these two sizes should be identical. Also enquires after the stock of the Double Demy.
