TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace Hart
Date11 April 1912
Description'The Charter book.
Since the last page of the Charter Book was photographed in the last autumn, two or three signatures have been added to it, and the President is very anxious to have these included in the reproduction. Would it be possible to photograph them separately and tack them on to the plate or must the whole page be photographed over again? Perhaps you would spear to your photographer about it. I understand that he may want to retake one of the pages; and he could do this in whatever way is most suitable at the same time. But in any case I think the signatures ought to be included.'
