October 31st. 1925.


Dr Norman Leys, 
Nr. Derby.


Dear Leys:


I think you were rather astonished by my statement that the original estimate which I gave you for "Kenya" was accurate, and that you remained a little doubtful.  I looked up my original letter and estimate last night and compared them with the expenditure on the first edition. I enclose a short statement showing that I was correct. When you reckon that the cost of the maps was £6.10.0. you will find that my estimate of August 1924 was within 19/7 1/2 of the actual expenditure.
