Date28 July 1915
Description'I am informed by Dr Waller that a book entitled "Germany's Food - can it last?", to which he has written an introduction, will be issued to the public tomorrow; and I shall be glad to know if you can let us have a few copies at once for the use of a Committee of this Society which is advising the Government on related problems.
In the circumstances I hope you may see your way to letting us have the work at less than the published price and would ask you to send as many copies as you can supply for 10/-.'
