TitleDraft letter from Michael Foster to P[hilip] L[utley] Sclater
DescriptionInforms that the Challenger committee, having urged upon the Lords of the Treasury the great importance of distributing as soon as possible the presentation copies of the Challengers' reports, were desired to reconsider the list and reduce it. The committee returned the list containing only names [illegible] but that it was also not accepted, and now they feel the matters have passed out of the hands of the Royal Society.
