Proofs of the report have been received and latterly a completed copy with all the plates inserted. They understand from the printers that they are only waiting to be instructed as to how many copies to print. The Society would like 750 copies for distribution amongst the Fellows and various institutions at home and abroad. The Foreign Office will decide how many additional copies should be printed off for public sale. As there has been so much delay in the issue of this report, the Society would be glad if the printers could receive their instructions with as little delay as possible.
