Date27 July 1891
Description'I sent you a written memo. [memorandum] to say that the two Wood-Mason plates were to come at the ends of the papers & before the index; I don't at all like the idea of their being laid loose under the cover; they should have been fastened in, in the place that I told you & which was further indicated in the list of contents in the wrapper'.
