TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Adam Sedgwick, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison asks whether the plate in Cresswell Shearer's paper, 'Cell communications between blastomeres' should be reproduced in colour or monochrome. He notes that multiple shades appear on the original but they are indistinct, and consequently suggests that reproduction in one shade, possibly violet, may most closely resemble the original. The costs are noted as £7 or £8 for a single shade, or £12 or £13 for multiple shades.

He asks that Sedgewick inform of him of his wishes so they may progress with publication.
