Date25 September 1905
DescriptionSends four queries regarding the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. Asks for the names of the authors in hand for the new numbers of 'Proceedings' A and B. Cannot answer the Messrs query concerning the sheet of Cash and Dunstan's paper without the rest of the paper and asks that they therefore send the previous sheets. Queries if the Messrs have received a definite instruction with regard to the cloth covers for 'Proceedings' volumes. Asks for a specimen of a thin, strong, cheap, non-sealing envelope in which to send out 'Proceedings' in lieu of the wrapper hitherto used, and a price per thousand compared with the price of the present wrappers.
