TitleCopy letter from Theodore E James, to Professor Michael Foster, [Royal Society]
Date1 August 1889
DescriptionJames has received a specimen of the title page of the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers' from Messrs Clay, and notes that they have omitted the date with the possible intention of avoiding the impression that they were the printers. He states the bibliographical references necessary, and asks if the date could go below these volume numbers, if at all.

Dr Klein has said that the 'statement of claim' for a Royal Medal for Dr Gaskell written by Foster last year does not require any additions, and so has suggested that it simply be reprinted. James asks if Foster agrees.
