TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs Annan & Sons, Glasgow
Date29 April 1912
Description'I have discussed your letter of the 23rd instant with the President, and although we should have been very glad in ordinary circumstances to order the copies of the photogravure portrait of Lord Kelvin to be printed by your firm, the President thinks that, inasmuch as a number of other portraits are to be included in the volume which the Oxford Press are printing, it is desirable for the sake of a certain uniformity of [pages] that they should all be printed off by the Clarendon Press. We shall therefore be much obliged if you will send the plates here in order that we may send them with the necessary instructions to Oxford.'
