TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Superindendent of Demands, H M Stationery Office
Date5 March 1908
DescriptionWith reference to The Superindendent's enquiry made yesterday as to the use of official standing type of the documents about to be reprinted for the Sleeping Sickness Reports No. IX. Harrison is directed to say that so large a type as that under reference is very unusual in scientific publications of octavo size , but the Society will not press their objection to it if H M Stationery considers its used imperative. Harrison encloses a further report by Captain Gray, date 18 January, which it is desired to include in the forthcoming number.
