TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date27 September 1905
DescriptionIn reply to the Messrs letter, sends herewith a corrected proof of the Tsetse Fly paper referred to in Harrison's letter of the previous day [not enclosed]. Asks the Messrs to set this up at once in the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' type, to be included in the current number of 'Proceedings' B, and send a proof as soon as possible. The existing type of the Tsetse Fly paper is to be corrected and kept standing for the purposes of the Sleeping Sickness reports.

The Messrs had better re-work the half sheet for the volume but a sufficient number of copies of erratum slips ought to be struck off for use for the separate paper copies.

Returns sheets 2I and 2K of 'Proceedings' B 512, correction made on page 483.

Returns the specimen covers for the 'Proceedings' volume and asks to see a revised pattern with block letters throughout. Also asks that they admit the point after 'London' and after the figures.
