TitleCopy letter from [Charles Richard Weld, the Assistant Secretary of] the Royal Society; to Messr Cobbatt
Date22 December 1845
DescriptionWishes to correct a 'fatal error' on part of Messrs Cobatt that Charles Richard Weld is seen as a representative of the Royal Society. Informs that Cobbatt should write to the Treasurer before 'taking so unjustifiable a step'. Also explains that Weld had not seen a representative of Cobatt until Friday, so it is a mistake to say repeated applications had been made to him. Includes a Postscript to Cobbatt, explaining that a sum greater than the one now demanded was paid in 1836 to cover for 10 years, and that the [recent] bill was for work in 1836.
