TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Mr Collings, 172 Strand
Date1 June 1891
Description'Dear Mr Collings - Would you let me know tomorrow how much these ten figs. [figures] will cost approximately? If the sum is not very large I can give the order at once. I want you to get on with them without any delay, as the paper has been greatly hindered for various reasons, to the author's great annoyance. The text is already in hand, which is another reason for your utmost expedition. They are for Phil. Trans. ['Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society']. If you could call yourself, I have another small matter to speak of'.
