|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Honourable C [Charles] A [Algernon] Parsons FRS
|19 July 1910
|'Dear Mr Parsons,
I looked through the papers you sent me relating to Mr Maw's proposed certificate and think that Mr Richardson's version could be got on to the face of the certificate if typed in small type like that used on the copy I originally sent you, but a considerable amount of space could be saved, without, affecting the essence of the statement, if it were made less lavish of verbs and pronouns, and were drawn up in a more condensed form common in our certificates. For this purpose I return you the original and Mr Richardson's statement, as well as his letter, and a blank form of certificate to be filled in.'
