TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edwin Ray Lankester, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date21 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison asks for Lankester to clarify whether an account from an engraver, Mr Butterworth, charging four pounds and 16 shillings for work undertaken on his paper on Cephalodiscus, was sent with his authority. His paper was submitted with a note stating the block was to be supplied by Butterworth, and their assumption that it was to be given without charge appeared to be confirmed by the block having been ordered independently.
