The reference: {enclosure no. 1 in Proceedings no. 70, S (secret) E (External), Feb. 1919, nos. 4-100. (slip B)}.

It's just a guess on my part, but when we speak of a "slip" like this one, it usually refers to a piece of paper - a "slip" of paper. So it seems that there is more than one "slip" of paper, and this one is (slip B), indicating there is a (slip A) and perhaps more.

thank you.

Yes, I realise that it means a paper or piece of paper, but what I need to know if it is a document in itself or a piece of paper for classification( as in a alphabetical classified book, etc.) within the file or record.

Ah, okay. Well, again, I'm just guessing, but by what is written (The reference:) and using a colon, I would suspect that this "reference" is on slip B.

Fir Wa, your question really is for the people who maintain that documentation, regarding how they store their records and the labels they have given them. It really isn't an English-language question.
IMO
