And here is the reply.  Note the change in volume number as well as the
correction of the issue number problem.

Dear Mr Helgesen

Many apologies for the delay in replying.

The numbers for the 23 and 30 August issues both appeared as volume number
292; issue no. 9133. The volume number was correct but, due to a typing
error, the issue number was incorrect in the second instance; i.e: the 30
August was issue no. 9134. Unfortunately this error was not spotted until
after the next issue (6 September) had gone to press. Therefore, this issue
was also incorrectly numbered. It should have been volume 293; issue no.
The issue of 13 September is therefore volume 293; issue no. 9136. We
will then be back on track. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Best wishes
