TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Harrison & Sons
Date25 June 1889
DescriptionEncloses Oldfield Thomas' corrected 'explanation of plate' [not included], and asks that the corrections be inserted in the proof sent to them for pages yesterday. Monckmann's paper is also enclosed [not included], to be inserted after William Huggins's paper on the limit of solar light, and before Thomas Gaskin's obituary in the last sheet of the number.

Also notes that Monckmann's paper was made into pages without orders to do so, and before its reading at the meeting. This was highlighted, but when an addendum was sent, this was also made into pages without instruction. This will likely to have to be remade, and this should be at Harrison & Sons expense.
