TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Unknown Recipient
Date16 June 1909
Description'On more than one occasion lately we have had to complain of the delay in sending proofs of the weekly summary which we now print. The matter for this issue is all standing in type by Thursday in each week; copy made up is sent to you on Friday afternoon, and a complete proof ought to be in our hands without fail the first thing on Monday morning. It can then be sent to press from here easily on Monday afternoon in time to be struck off with the weekly postcard with which it is issued. If any delay occurs in this process it must delay the issue of the postcard which would lead to great complaints.'
