DescriptionWrties on the subject of the plates for Mr. Onslow's paper. Informs Mr. J. B. Peace that in March 1920 Mr. Onslow quoted £44 for the price of the lithographic work on his three plates, and assured them that there would be no charge for the drawing. Notes, therefore, their alarm at the recent account of the work, which stands at £110.13.6., and includes £43.10.0. for the 'artist's time drawing'. Asks Mr. J. B. Peace for an explanation.
