TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to W B Keen
Date2 February 1912
Description'If there are any corrections to come into the proof of the end matter to our accounts, namely, National Physical Laboratory, Government Grant, and International Catalogue Fund, please let me have the proof at once as we are going to press with the Year Book in which these accounts will appear. I assume there are none or I should have heard.
Referring to the batch of documents used at the Audit, comprising the Bank of England verification of Stock Accounts, Bath Corporation Stock, Robbarts' statement of balances, Lloyds' Statement, and others, now in your hands, I think these should be filed here along with your hands, I think these should be filed here along with previous years, so I shall be glad to have them back.
A note has been taken to make application in future for all these documents on November 1st each year.'
