The explanation, we have reason to believe, accept that proposal, but the result of the interview is the sugpiracy of works published by the Government, but it is not the willing to grant a lease. It is, of course, uncertain whether the other intention of the Stationery ofice to interfere with the privilege side will agree to the terms, or whether the lessor's solicitor will
