TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir Ray Lankester KCB, FRS
Date18 January 1912
DescriptionLankester's letter of yesterday has crossed Harrison, but it partly anticipated his question. The arrangement of him having the blocks for his paper made himself has already been sanctioned and the estimate has been so far approved. The edition of the PHilosophical Transactions is 800 and the oridnary number of gratis authors' copies is 100, making 900 in all.
On re-reading Lankester's letter Harrison observes that he speaks of a fourht plate not mentioned in correspondence, Harrison hopes he will be able to squeeze this out of the aggregate sum mentioned in the letter.
