TitleCopy letter from Alfred H White, to Professor Edward Albert Schafer, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date12 September 1889
DescriptionWhite forwards to Schafer the proofs to Mr E P France's paper for 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society' which have been received from the Autotype Company [not included]. He highlights that there are six impressions of each plate, and those not approved of can be returned to the Royal Society who usually keep spare proofs of the plates for reference. Proofs of the lithograph plate were sent on the 26 August.

The text is unlikely to be ready for a week or two, and White asks whether it should be posted to Schafer, or direct to Mr France.
