TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date4 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that the Treasurer of the Royal Society, Alfred Bray Kempe, wishes for their payments for paper to match their usage during the financial year, from October to October, and so correspond with the number of sheets published in that time. He therefore asks that they carry over to November with as little stock as possible, to minimise the disparity between payments to papermakers and the cost of paper used for publications during the year.

Harrison invites them to see him about the matter, when they can also discuss other matters connected with the stock.
