DescriptionShackleton's letter of today asking for a complete set of the 'Challenger' Reports for the purpose of reference by the scientific members of the British Antarctic Expedition 1907, is receiving immediate attention so far as the Royal Society is concerned. The disposition of these reports rests with His Majesty's Treasury. Some little time must therefore elapse before a decision is arrived at.
