Date4 January 1909
Description'Dear Sir,
With reference to your letter od December 31st; it is not the practice of the Royal Society to lend the original blocks of illustrations in the Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society], but there would be no objection to supplying you with electros of the blocks at a trifling cost to yourself. If electros will serve your purpose, and you will let me know which particular illustrations to Mr Kaye's paper you wish to reproduce, I will instruct our printers, Messrs Harrison & Sons, to prepare electros, and to send them to you with their account.'
