TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to F Jeffrey Bell, British Museum (Natural History), Cromwell Road, S.W.
Date30 October 1906
DescriptionIn reply to Bell's letter of 24 October, Harrison has submitted the proofs Bell sent to Sir Archibald Geikie and other Officers of the Society, and is authorized to say that they have noted the proposed title page and back lettering of the British Museum volumes of the National Antarctic reports and would only suggest that the date of the expedition might be included in the title.

Thinks the two uppermost lines of the title page Bell send seem unnecessarily large and heavy. Encloses a proof of the title page of one of the volumes that is being published at the Society for comparison [not enclosed].
