TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date25 September 1890
DescriptionThe correspondent hears with surprise from Messrs Ballance & Shattock this morning that they have not yet had the copies of their paper on cancer published in 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' number 294. The Messrs appear again to have forgotten the rule that authors are to have their separate copies directly the sheet is printed off, and without waiting for the issue of the whole number.
