TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to F E Baxandall, Solar Physics Observatory, South Kensington, SW
Date13 January 1912
Description'In answer to your enquiry concerning extra copies of this paper on Iron Flame Spectrum, I beg to say the charge for these copies stood against Sir Norman Lockyer's name, but the bill would not be sent out for some time yet. We have had no Board of Educatiion requisition for this paper. The form was filled in (probably by yourself) simply for 150 copies in the line "at my own expense".
Will you please ask in the proper quarter to have the formal requisition from the Board of Education sent me here, not to our printers as you commonly send them. I had occasion to send a letter about this only a few days ago.'
