Date16 January 1895
DescriptionThe Society has received from the printers today the edition of Professor Hertley's[?] paper containing a plate done by the Company. This plate is cut much too small. The correspondent does not know how the mistake has arisen but mentions it so that they may be on their guard next time and not take this one for a pattern of size.
