TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to D Cameron Swan
Date10 November 1908
DescriptionThe Royal Society are anxious to clear up the Foster Portrait Fund Account. Enquires if their accounts for the photogravure plate are still outstanding, and if they sent copies of the photogravure to the address of any of the Fellows who died after the fund was started. Copies ought to be sent to the widows of subscribers, and for that purpose, in addition to possible other demands for the engraving, a few more copies will be required to be printed. In that event, presumes they would print them at the same rate as they charged for 150, which was £14.10.
