TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to the Cambridge Scientific Instrument Company
Date13 March 1888
Description'By this post I send you five plates ^(Phil Trans ['Philosophical Transactions'])^ to illustrated Mr Bury's paper. Please let me have an estimate for them & say how long they will take to do. If there are any queries as to what is required, please refer to Dr [Michael] Foster. It would be a good convenience if we could have the estimate by Thursday (15th) but I suppose this is hardly possible'.
