TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date27 July 1891
Description'We shall send you very shortly a set of blocks for Prof [Professor] Lockyer's paper. Will you take special care in printing from these, to keep them clean, as extra pains has been taken with them & they are somewhat costly. What we want particularly to ask is that after the first proof is taken you will have them cleaned instead of letting them lie wet for the ink to dry into them. We do not doubt that in printing off the sheets the usual care will be taken'.
