TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Harrison & Sons
Date30 April 1888
DescriptionExpresses surprise that Mr Gotch has not yet received separate copies of his abstract, sheet 2G of 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' number 264. He reminds them that the President and Council of the Royal Society wish that, as each sheet of 'Proceedings' is sent to press, it should be printed off and the separate authors copies be issued without waiting for the whole number to be issued. Despite a previous complaint the problem remains, and so he insists that in future this instruction is attended to.
