DescriptionIn reply to the Cheif Accountant's letter of yesterday, Rix as Assistant Secretary to the Royal Society, finds that in his statement of Consols, he has included £3452-1-1 in Chancery, and the correct amount standing in the name of the President, Council and Fellows of the Royal Society is therefore probably £15,861-19-1.
