TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir [Robert Abbott] Hadfield, FRS
Date14 August 1917
DescriptionAsks Sir [Robert Abbott] Hadfield what he proposes doing with regard to the reproduction of figures for his paper on Manganese. Notes that they appear to be photographs, and asks if he has any negatives that he could lend the printers. Also suggests that it might be better to put the legends on the diagrams into English, which would require redrawing them, at which point they could be redrawn in a suitable size for direct reproduction.
