TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace Hart
Date20 April 1912
DescriptionAdverting to Hart's letter of the 11th instant accompanying the dummy copies sent as specimens of the paper to be used in The Record of the Royal Society. Harrison now has the President's authority for saying that the paper used in the thinner dummy is the one selected. This has been chosen principally to keep the bulk of the book within limits. Harrison is sending with this sheet Q for revise in pages, this is made up of sections of different chapters. According to the latest pagination in our hands this sheet will run from 225 to about 240, as the elimination of a block for which space had been provided on page 237, will probably throw back the rest of the sheet one page.
