TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Captain [Henry George] Lyons, Army and Navy Club, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date31 May 1905
DescriptionFears there has been an omission by the printers, or a difficulty which was not explained to Lyons about the extra 150 copies of Lyons' paper.

Dr [William Napier] Shaw, who communicated the paper, requested 100 gratis copies. Harrison received Lyons' Cairo letter on 25 February asking for 150 more if not loo late, and Harrison passed this on to the printers believing it would be acted upon. However it seems the printers have not struck off the extra copies and have distributed the type. The Society will bear the cost of resetting the paper and Lyons would only be charged the cost of striking.
