Date10 June 1906
DescriptionHarrison reports that Professor George Downing Liveing has written to him regarding the payment for the mineral sent to de Lisle from Joachimstal and asked Harrison to communicate with him. He corrects the value given by Liveing, and states that the agreement was that 1500 kroner be paid for 500 kilos, and asks that de Lisle pay this amount plus 5 kroner for carriage, and inform him of the equivalent amount in English money. Harrison will then send a cheque for the correct amount.
