TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William de Wiveleslie Abney, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date14 October 1912
DescriptionRegarding the printing of his latest paper - Abney complained that printers had put R.S G.S and B.S for his R S G S and B S. This has been pointed out to them, as well as surprise at their carelessness. They now reply it was not due to carelessness, but was done deliberately as his former papers had the former style. This certainly appears to be the case. Perhaps he has a reason for changing it. The printers have been told to wait until the matter is resolved.
