TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor William Henry Perkin, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date3 April 1905
DescriptionHad already made a note of the correction for the Year Book. The mistake is entirely due to printer's error, while the book was in the last stage of proof, probably owing to type dropping out and being incorrectly replaced, and he was annoyed about it. Unfortunately the edition was struck off when it was discovered.
