In answer to yours of yesterday, the papers for March 1st are fixed to-day, and March 8th is the Croonian Lecture, therefore the earliest possible date would be March 15th, and your paper is not likely to come on then as we have already 22 papers on hand. Moreover, no paper can be announced until it is in the house. My advice is, get your paper in as quickly as possible, or I foresee that it will not come on until near the end of the session. Inclosed I send you the card for which you ask.
