TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date21 May 1891
Description'Dear Sirs - I am directed to point out that Professor Darwin's paper published on May 15th was sent to you for press on April 9th. The officers are of opinion that this is an unreasonably long interval, & I am to ask you if it would not be possible in general to reduce the interval between press & publication in the case of Phil. Trans. ['Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'] papers'.
