In reply to your favor <1> I beg to say that only two papers have as yet been printed of our new number & that there will therefore be ample time for your valuable contribution. The most convenient plan would no doubt be to insert your Glossery <2> at the beginning of the Volume. All our papers have first a paging of their own for the Author’s copies & only when these have been struck off, the necessary alterations for the Journal are made on the paging. If your printer would therefore begin page 1, you might perhaps be able to tell me in about a month’s time or so how many pages you wish to contribute to our present number – I may even say that it will take at least two months before the alterations in the paging of the articles will be made. If, however, you find such an arrangement inconvenient, I shall have much pleasure
to in submitting any such proposal of yours to the Council, which will not, unfortunately, meet until this day fortnight.
I am, Sir, Yours obedly
