|Description||'Dear Mr Street,|
Theodore Bungay, who was last year in charge of the courtyard, did not receive from us our usual Christmas gift in consequence of his having left before Christmas. I could, however, send it to him if you would (privately) let me know that he was not dismissed for misconduct.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
