TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Miss Petherbridge, Secretarial Bureau, 9 Strand, W.C.
Date29 July 1896
DescriptionHarrison received Petherbridge's corrected proof of the first day's foreign speeches at the Conference and notes a good many minor mistakes in the proof are overlooked while some corrections made seem to be inappropriate.

With a view to further proofing, if they are to be revised at the Society as well as by Petherbridge, and then again by the speakers, it seems rather an unnecessary multiplication of labour.
