In response to your request we have asked our printers to endeavour to get out your private copies by the 30th, but the matter is entirely in their hands and their usual practice is not to print off authors copies before the No. containing the paper in question is published. However, I hope you may get your copies this week.
As to Dr Robertson's paper on Cordite, only a short abstract was published, which we will send you if we can find a spare copy. At present we have not been able to find one.'
