TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Professor E [Edward] A [Alfred] Minchin FRS
Date20 November 1912
Description'Many thanks for yout letter of the 17th and for your kind offer to have the illustrations to Miss Robertson's paper redrawn without cost to the Society. The Sectional Committee, who have to pass the paper, meet to-morrow, and will have to decide between this method of reproducing the plates and either collotype of lithography. The objection to the plan of redrawing and photographing down seems to be the length of time that redrawing so many figures must take. However, the Committee must decide.
I will nto forget your request for some of the figures for a lentern slide when they are available. Technically, we ought to have the consent of the author for this use of her figures and perhaps you could write to Miss Robertson and ask for it.'
