TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Edward Albert Sharpey-Schafer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date19 October 1906
DescriptionIs sorry the tracings returned are not satisfactory. The work was put through carefully. Most of the tracings were too large and had to be reduced. The blocks were engraved by Wilson of Cambridge and he sent up his scheme of reduction for approval to the Society. There seems to be no need to reduce these smaller tracings. If uniformity is indispensable he will get the four tracings done over and reduced, though he is sorry to have to incur any additional expenses. Asks if Sharpey-Schafer would consider it appropriate or satisfactory to place a note against these figures as now engraved, to the effect that being small have have been reproduced of the original size.
