TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace Hart
Date26 April 1912
DescriptionThe Record [of the Royal Society].
Harrison is hoping ti send off for revise the rest of Chapter 8 which he received in slip proof last week.
With regard to compressing the entries in the former, the President thinks Hart's suggestion of putting the name of the subject into two lines with a bracket, is a good one; but as Hart will see Harrison has tried to avoid the necessity of this in many cases.
Hart will observe that the Royal Society have taken out at least a whole page of the proof altogether. The President has fears that this will effect the pagination and Harrison gives details of what to do in that circumstance.
Hart will have received a telegram from Harrison indicating that the Royal Society urgently desire the proofs of the Alphabetical Lists of Fellows, copy of which was sent to Hart last week.
