TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr E K Martin
Date26 March 1912
Description'I learn by telephone from Mr Parsons this morning that Sir John Bradford has been trying to see him about your paper. I think Sir John is under some misapprehension about it, so I send a line at once to say the only difficulty we are in, after what you settled with me, is as to the precise planning of the figures. The engravers have suggested an arrangement which we do not quite like to adopt without consulting you; and I think by far the best plan would be, if you can spare the time, to run down here and go through them with Mr White, the Assistant Librarian, who is carrying the paper through the press. Unless I hear to the contrary he will expect you at some time convenient to yourself any day up to six o'clock.'
