1. WHFT read "The Fight between Bel and the Dragon, and the Flaming Sword which turned Every Way" at the meeting of the Society of Biblical Archaeology, 30 June 1876. It was published in the Transactions of the society in 1877, pp. 1-21. In this he adds the note to the Printer (including the dash) shown in Doc. No: 02711. Probably these two notes to the printers Harrison ( Doc. No: 02711 and 00825) were written in response to printers' proofs, which would date Doc. No: 02711 to 30 June 1877 and this document to 29 June 1877.
