We announced last week that no RECORD would be issued this week, but to make a necessary publication we are compelled to issue this diminutive sheet.
If one imagines that this has been a week of leisure with the RECORD force, that one is awfully “off.” It has been the busiest week of the year with “all hands.” Our new type has all been “laid” and everything is ready for the enlarged paper. But the new cylinder press has not yet arrived, and we may be compelled to issue the paper again next week in the old form, in which event we’ll feel like chewing nails. The press was due on the 20th last.
