TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Harrison & Sons, St Martins Lane
Date6 February 1891
DescriptionHerewith is a paper by Captain [William de Wiveleslie] Abney for 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', it consists largely of a memorandum belonging to the Colour Vision Committee which the Messrs already have in type [not attached]. The correspondent asks the Messrs to make the corrections in the memorandum. If the same type cannot with any saving of expense be used for 'Proceddings', it should be kept standing and fresh type set up for the 'Proceedings' page. If they can use the same type for 'Proceedings' they should print off 50 copies of the memorandum and then re-arrange the type for the 'Proceedings' slip.
