TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to the Director, the Science Museum, South Kensington, SW
Date17 May 1912
Description'In reply to your memo SPO 440, I beg to say that the bill you send to us in our opinion quite correct.
The paper was reset by request from your office and 100 more copies were furnished.
150 were sent in the first instance according to your printed order form of January 9. 100 more were wanted, but this was not clearly understood at the time. When the question was raised last month it was too late to get these copies and therefore it was agreed that the type should be reset, the 100 copies printed and supplied to your department at your charge. Hence the invoice, which I return with this.
If the matter is still not clear to you, perhaps you might call and we could explain further.'
