TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date21 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison forwards a pamphlet advertising an 'addressing machine' which he recommends they instal as a means of eliminating their recent difficulties in correctly addressing communications to Fellows of the Royal Society. If they were to buy one, a new stencil could be made upon receipt of a new address, with the old one returned to the Society to be destroyed.

He remains unsatisfied with their explanations as to why an address, seven years out of date, was still in use by them.
