DescriptionAsks that they send, between 11am and 4pm on any day except Thursday and Saturday, for a framed drawing of the Corona, similiar to those recently done by them for the Royal Society. They wish for an estimate to be quickly supplied for 1000 copies of the same, on paper similiar to that used in the former two plates.
