|Description||The parcel containing the four negatives for Hutton's Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society paper on the electric furnace have been delivered and they may go forward once he has considered Harrison's suggestions. |
He explains that regardless of trimming, the four figures cannot be composed in one plate, and so Harrison proposes that the fourth figure, showing the electrodes, be printed as a text block and the third figure, of the small high pressure furnace, be omitted. The latter is included in Mr Duffield's paper on Arc Spectra, which is to appear in the same volume, so reference could easily be made to the relevant illustration without inclusion in Hutton's paper. He believes including it as a second block would be approved by the Secretaries, so he hopes Hutton will agree to supress it or print it as a text block in his paper.
