I do not know whether you have heard that Professor Korosi before he left London lost his MS [manuscript]. He left it in a cab, & it has not been recovered & is not now likely to come back. We have the original German MS., shall I send this to the referee, or wait till the Professor has supplied a new translation (which he undertakes to do)? I am afraid it means several weeks delay.
