TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mr T P Collings
Date28 May 1909
Description'Dear Mr Collings,
In sending you the enclosed cheque for the accompanying account I am desired by the Treasurer to call your attention to the 1st and 4th items of the bill, and to ask whether your charge for tracing the Lodge diagrams is not rather heavy. Assuming that the making of the zinco blocks cost approximately the same in the two cases, £5 seems a good deal for tracing 16 curves, which I gather to be taken literally and does not indicate replotting them. We are so constantly told here that we spend more than we need on our illustrations that I am obliged to look closely into points like these.'
