TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs Waterlow & Sons Ltd
Date7 October 1910
Description'Dear Sirs,
I submitted the proof plates for Professor Dendy's paper, with the author's criticisms, to the Biological Secretary of the Society yesterday, and he desires me to say that, in his opinion, the author's criticisms are largely justified by actual defects in the execution of your reproductions, and in many points in the drawing. I am therefore requested to direct you in the first instance to remedy these defects to the satisfaction of the author, without extra charge on your estimate for the plates.
Your estimate does not specify the number of workings, and we therefore consider that the Society is entitled to claim a satisfactory result without any supplementary charges.'
