TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace Hart, Clarendon Press, Oxford
Date3 January 1912
Description'As the time approaches for sending you more copy for the Records of the RS we here are feeling a little anxious about the probably bulk of the volume, if much of it is printed in the rather magnificent type selected in its larger size. The President therefore is anxious to see a proof of the portion you are now setting up, as soon as it is ready, so as to judge from its appearance how much of the copy still to come we can suitable mark for setting in the small size of the selected fount. Will you therefore be so kind as to send to him at Haslemere as soon as you can a pull of the section you already have in hand, and with all good wishes for the new year.'
