TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Colonel Sir David Bruce CB, FRS
Date7 July 1911
Description'We will send you promptly paged proofs of the Sleeping Sickness Reports sheet by sheet as received by us, but we are in the hands of the Stationery Office and their printers and engravers. We have but little influence ourselves. All slip proof as received back corrected from you have been promptly returned to the printers marked for revise in pages, but there seems some delay with them over the illustrations. At the present moment they are enquiring about the figure or plate referred to in the blank space on slip 19 enclosed. Can you clear up the point?
We will send you if possible a double set of sheets throughout, so that you can retain one set for the preparation of the Index.'
