TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to D Cameron-Swan
Date10 March 1908
DescriptionHarrison has had the opportunity of showing the proof of the Sir Michael Foster Photogravure portrait to the Treasurer and he is satisfied with it. His only criticism is that the lines of wrinkles on the forehead seems rather disproportionately strong. The treasurer does not think we can have an autograph signature upon the prints. Harrison thinks they must leave the question of a publication line for Cameron-Swan. Harrison thinks 150 copies will satisfy all requirements that he is aware of.
