TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Reverend F J Jervis-Smith FRS
Date18 February 1908
DescriptionThe block of the figure in Jervis-smith's paper is quite right. The rod E is solid black on the engraver's proof. The fault is with the printers and is due to their hasty printing on rough paper. In the published addition this shall be made right. Harrison asks that Jervis-Smith returns the manuscript of his paper, to be preserved with the others in the usual way.
