TitleCopy letter from A H White, to the Autotype Company, Ealing Dene
Date18 August 1891
DescriptionWhite reports that they have heard via Mr [Joseph] Lunt that the Autotype Company is particularly busy at the moment, so will be unable to begin work on [Henry Enfield Roscoe] and Lunt's paper for some time. He notes that the Royal Society were disappointed to hear this, as the paper in question was to be issued with as little delay as possible, but that they can only ask that the plates are begun at the earliest possible moment.

It is important that they be given some indication of the date the plates will ready, and so White asks that they inform them of the earliest possible date for the delivery of the 1000 copies ordered.
