TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to L C Bromley, H W Treasury
Date25 March 1908
Description'Dear Sir,
In reply to your note of yesterday, some unavoidable delay has occurred on account of the absence of members of the Challenger Committee whose opinion has had to be taken upon the application for a grant of the complete set of the Reports to the Victoria College, Wellington. Answers have however now come in from the majority, which are favourable to the grant, subject only to the adequacy of the remaining stock to supply it, and an official letter will be coming to the Treasury in the course of the next day or two.'
