TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Colonel Sir David Bruce CB, FRS
Date15 July 1910
Description'Dear Sir David,
I have not yet answered your enquiry about the correction you made to the title of Minchin's article in the new Sleeping Sickness Report.
The corrections you made were taken in as far as could conveniently be done, but they came too late for all the [?], the proof being then in pages, as you will remember.
The correction you write about would have involved "over-running", so under the circumstances it did not seem worth making. White consulted Dr Bradford, and that was his feeling. So the proof went through as it was, without being shown to me.
We are sending you down the additional 25 copies you ask you.'
