I am obliged to you for your note of the 8th inst. [instant] offering for sale in a charitable cause a set of the Bulletin of the Societe de l'Industrie Minerale. I find upon enquiry that the publication, though valuable, is too technical to be of use in this library. Should I hear of any likely purchase I will let you know.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
