TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date30 June 1911
Description'Please see figure on P 121 of enclosed offprint and compare it with the same page of the Proceedings [of the Royal Society] No Author has returned this as a sample of his 100 private copies, and I find that our separate copy is just as bad.
This is shocking work, and I am astonished you should let such printing go out from your house. I understand the type of this paper is now distributed, which is unfortunate. But I should like to hear what you have to say on your side, and what proposal you have to make in the matter.'
