TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor John Carruthers Beattie
Date26 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison explains that the installments of Beattie's manuscript presented him with difficulties with regard to arrangement, and equally to the printers, so Dr Charles Chree agreed to go through and mark the 'inessential modifications' in red ink. They are almost certain to have it printed at the Cambridge Press due to their expertise in such technical work, but he has been instructed to obtain estimates to ensure they keep within the available funds, and he must wait for the remainder of the material and the maps.
