TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr [Frederick Walker] Mott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date24 July 1913
DescriptionHas been considering the question referred to in his letter of 1 July as to the sending of the blocks for the Wilson and Pike paper to the authors. The difficulty is that Dr Wilson has never paid for the share of the cost of the illustrations, the account which Mott was good enough to hand to him when he was in America. Original blocks are not sent away, but electros are supplied at cost price, and it is not clear how to distinguish between blocks they are supposed to have paid for and those which the Royal Society has paid for. The understanding seems to be that they should pay a share of the total cost.

The simplest solution seems to be to have electros of all made and sent to Pike with a credit note.
