We are terribly worried at the absence of news and proofs from you. Has the compositor taken to the bottle again? Or taken on outside work again?? It is devilishly important now to put the paper out without delay (for there is highly important and urgent material concerning the London Conference ). For God’s sake answer quickly. This is one thing. 2) Do your best to speed up the issue. Hurry with the proofs. 3) Call your group together and take all steps jointly to organise the proper issue of the C.O. once for all. Really, these delays are impossible: they kill all desire to work!!
