Scope and content

Bowes & Bowes, 1 Trinity Street, Cambridge, England. - In reply to Trevelyan's letter of 2 December: has managed to get two copies of the "Oresteia" from the printer (without covers); encloses them and hopes they will serve. The last part of the book has gone to press today; hopes to publish it the week after next if the binders work to time. Trevelyan must not 'reproach' himself for the delay to the last part of his translation, as 'it must be very hard to do such writing against time', and the [Cambridge University] Press being 'overburdened with work' was more of a hindrance. Has not been possible to publish before the end of Full Term, but will be able to get the 'specimen copies for which certain classical masters have asked' to them before school term ends. Is sending 'a preliminary "puff" to the literary papers today'.
