TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W C Bottomley, The Colonial Office
Date3 October 1906
DescriptionThanks Bottomley for his letter of the previous day, but was sorry to read it. There was a good deal of discussion about the size of these reports when the decision was arrived at that the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' was the most suitable, and it was understood at the time that the Stationary Office would be able to print it in that size. With regard to securing uniformity with Mott's report, it seems possible to Harrison that the type that is being set up might still be printed on paper of the official size by sacrificing some margin, and he is writing to Bale and Sons to ask if that could be done.
