TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs Harrison & Sons
DateMay 1910
Description'I am obliged to complain of the delay in sending in proofs of the Meeting Abstracts required from week to week.
Two of the Abstracts for tomorrow's Meeting were sent to you last week, and no proof has reached us yet (and this is 4pm). Such procedure makes the announcement advertisement in the Times every week, and on the weekly postcard, that copies of these Abstracts can be obtained in advance from the Assistant Secretary, an absurdity; and I shall be much obliged by your giving instructions that these Abstracts are to be dealt with promptly, and proofs sent in within 24 hours of the receipt of copy.'
