TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Mr Collings
Date18 April 1890
DescriptionHerewith the correspondent sends one figure for Shaw[?] and 17 curves for Hopkinson. Collings can proceed at once if the latter are to be done at the usual rate but should send a statement of what the cost will be, all white on black for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]'. They are for next week and should all be done if possible. If not finished in time the originals should be returned in good time for the meeting.

Boys' figure [herewith] is for next week also so Collings should put the curves in hand at once without waiting for acceptance of an estimate. The correspondent has written to Bouts to send the big diagram for the process block.

Bidwell is also put down for next week. Herewith are four diagrams, white on black, for 'Proceedings' which Collings should try to let them have in time.
