|Description||'Dear Mr Harrison,|
In answer to your note of the 10th inst. [instant], I send you by the Treasurer's instructions a copy of the essential part of the Bond executed at the time of my appointment as Assistant Secretary. The preamble only is omitted, and I think it will give you the information you require. I may add that in my case two sureties undertook the burden between them "jointly and severally".
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
