TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Joseph Norman Lockyer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date21 March 1905
DescriptionIs putting the map from Lockyer's paper on stone circles in hand. Asks for the use of the sheet of the 25 inch ordnance for the engraver to photograph from direct and that they be allowed to diminish the area of the map by say half an inch at the west side. The scale of the map will not admit of further reduction as even now the smallest lettering is not legible without a glass. Explains that they could make a much more legible skeleton map and he thinks this would be a more satisfactory plan if Lockyer will allow it.
