Date9 November 1891
Description'Messrs Roscoe & Lunt have at length passed the text of their paper for press, & I am able to give you the headlines & plate-numbers. In the style of writing please follow the pattern sent herewith. Please print 1025 copies, but this I fancy is already done, & you are only waiting to finish the headlines? The headlines which are already done, were done without our orders & are all wrong. The authors must pay for this if they ordered them'.
