TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Robert Bousfield, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date20 January 1905
DescriptionIn reply to Bousfield's enquiry as to the probable date of publication of his 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' paper, there must still be some delay on account of the very extensive alterations made in the proof. The printers are at work on these now and the engraver has the blocks of the altered figures in hand, and will probably require a week for the work. As Bousfield will need to see a revised proof and as the paper is a heavy one, Harrison does not see much prospect of its appearing in less than a months time.
