TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor George Forbes, Fellow of the Royal Society, Uplands, Fareham, Hampshire
Date6 December 1907
DescriptionHarrison has received Forbes' letter and concludes from this and the nature of the diagrams in his paper, that it will not be necessary to have wall diagrams specially prepared. He enquired of Forbes as he had thought, upon inspection of the sketches, that he may wish their engravers to redraw them at his expense, so as to make them suitable for direct photographic reproduction, as stated in the notice printed on the cover of Proceedings of the Royal Society. He had assumed Forbes' letter of 30 November was in response to a remark of Professor Larmor's on the subject.

The Royal Society always accept the expense of preparing blocks for printing, but do not undertake to make drawings for authors for the purpose of reproduction.
