Date26 November 1889
Description'The Verein für Erdkunde, Dresden, informs us that "Proceedings R.S." ['Proceedings of the Royal Society'] Nos 206-220 never reached them. These were sent in two parcels by your agency. Nos 206-213 on Aug [August] 24, 1881 and Nos 214-220 on Sept [September] 8/82. It is very late in the day to claim them, but if you can put us on the track of the missing parcels we shall feel obliged. Even if you cd [could] tell us to what Continental agent they were consigned, it would be a help'.
