TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs West Newman & Company
Date2 December 1907
DescriptionHarrison states that their estimate of £17 12 shillings and six pence for Dr Charles William Andrews plates has been accepted, and asks them to begin work.

He regrets that the drawing is so expensive, and states that as they are in favour of employing Miss Woodward, and given their remarks on the matter, they are happy for West Newman and Company to engage Woodward to put the subjects on the stone for them instead of sending their own draughtsman to the Museum. It must be understood that Woodward is engaged by the company and not by the Royal Society, who can only deal with the estimate as a whole.
