TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to the Autotype Company, 74 New Oxford Street, W.C.
Date24 February 1891
DescriptionReturns to them two proof plates approved by Professor Edward Albert Schafer for press. The correspondent has written in the headlines and plate numbers, with the latter to be in Arabic rather then Roman numerals. Also encloses a spare proof to provide an example of the style of writing to be adopted for the sake of uniformity, and preferably the same tone if possible.

Asks that 1650 copies of each plate be printed.
