TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Archibald Geikie, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date16 September 1908
Description[James Hartley] Ashworth's paper for 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' is heavily illustrated, and while the author is contributing to the cost, he has asked that they be done by Werner and Winters, who have estimated them to be £140. They have been informed this is rather a lot. Asks Geikie if the plates should wait over for further consideration, or should an alternative estimate be got.

A copy of the Antarctic Physical Volume has just been sent to him. Asks if he has any instructions as to distribution by Harrison's, or should distribution wait awhile.
