TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr A E Wilson
Date30 May 1906
DescriptionHarrison, not having heard from Wilson on the topic for a long time, enquires about the progress of Wilson's project to collate and reproduce the Antarctic photographs. He notes that Wilson was to enquire with various firms about their prices for reproduction and obtain samples of their work, and subsequently report to the Committee at the Royal Society. He believes the Swan Engraving Company supplied their specimens and prices some time ago, and suspects that Wilson has obtained others. If he has made sufficient enquiries, Harrison asks that he report to them and show the samples.
