|Description||'Dear Miss Taylor,|
In answer to yours of the 3rd inst. [instant], I do not yet know who my successor will be, but I will try to remember to mention your name to him. Our own typewriting department has become so much more efficient than in former years that we have little need now for extraneous help.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
