TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to unknown recipient
Date21 March 1912
Description'Proceedings [of the Royal Society], B 575.
I must draw your attention to a bad thing in above. The portrait of Dr Ringer is very badly printed. The impression is worse than that of the proof which we have under our eye. This requires explanation. We expressly asked you to get the best impression possible and we certainly expect the edition to be up to the proof. We must have this cleared up. I suggest you send a responsible man up to see me about it.'
