TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Frederick Walker Mott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date8 October 1906
DescriptionThe Society has been upset by a notice from the Colonial Office that number eight of the 'Sleeping Sickness Reports' which is to come out after Mott's report, and which the Colonial Office undertook to have printed by the Stationary Office, can only be printed in their official size which is narrower than the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. The Stationary Office's decision will introduce an unfortunate lack of uniformity into the series. Queries if Mott would agree to his report being published in the Stationary Office size provided the text and plates could be printed on paper of that size.
