TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to E H Ross MRCS
Date14 February 1912
Description'In the reproduction of the coloured figures illustrating your paper on Guineapig Leucocytozoon, the lithographers find that they could get a fair result with four colours, if you are willing that figures 18 and 19 should be approximately represented as to their shades of colour. That is in Fig. 18 the faint yellow Corpuscle would be rendered by a shade of violet and the red by a shade of purple.
Would you kindly advise me whether you consider these approximations would suffice or whether you consider a facsimile reproduction every colour indispensable. I enquire because the latter course would involve an additional expense of about 75%, or £6 addition, compared with only 4 shades of colour.
I am naturally reluctant to put the Society to this extra expense unless it is really unavoidable.
I enclose your originals so that you may have them under your eye.'
