|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir George H [Howard] Darwin, KCB, FRS|
|Date||27 April 1912|
|Description||'I have just heard from your brother that you have the negative of a photograph of Ouless' portrait of Mr Charles Darwin, which is the one the President desires to reproduce in the new edition of the "Record". |
We were proposing, as I think you know, to reproduce Rajon's etching of this portrait which we possess, but a photograph of the picture would be a simpler and quicker means of producing the photogravure plate, and the PResident has asked me to ask you first of all whether you would let us see a print of that photograph, and in the event of its proving as adequate as the etching, allowing us to use the negative for the production of a photogravure plate.'
