25 copies only of this Erratum Slip were printed. With pencil note on accompanying card by Brooke Crutchley explaining 'Erratum slip inserted in copies of book or pamphlet (JWC's Handlist?) placed before each person at luncheon in Trinity Hall after ceremony at which SM received his honorary D.Litt'. The Erratum was something of an in-joke and reads in part 'For Mr Morison, read Dr Morison, passim. In a letter of acknowledgement to Crutchley, Morison wrote 'Don't, however, press the joke too far and have me addressed, regularly, as "Dr". There is a matter of logic here; the point of refusing a knighthood was to refuse a title. You will find somewhere in your office a standing order ... in 1923 to the effect that I was not to be called either Mr or Esq'.
