Dr. Playfair suggests an official presentation to Prince Albert on the 1st May 1852, of the Jury Reports, to call to attention the astonishing result of publishing 2,000 pages of reports in 5 months. Compares this to French Juries who are reported to have taken 3 years in the preparation of theirs.
