TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to Dr A W Campbell
Date27 November 1903
DescriptionDiscusses the Society publishing Campbell's paper in parts. Notes the parts should be numbered consecutively and that the abstract, which is intended for immediate publication, as a step toward securing priority, must be an abstract dealing with the parts sent in and with these alone. There should be an abstract for part one, and part two, et cetera. Is therefore returning Campbell's abstract and asks that he number the chapters in the order in which he wishes them placed.

Notes the plan of fastening the figures on the back of the sheets of manuscripts should not be used. It does not seem desirable to publish the large figure with the abstract.
