TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date11 May 1891
Description'Prof Schafer [Professor Edward Albert Schafer] writes to complain that he has had no separate copies of his paper yet. It is in the first sheet of the forthcoming number of "Proceedings" ['Proceedings of the Royal Society'] which was passed weeks ago, & the plates for it I believe have been delivered some time since. What am I to say in excuse [sentence underlined]? Pray hurry them forward'.
