We have received from you two numbers of your "Preisschriften", namely, No. XII. of the "Mathematisch-naturwissenschaftliche Section"and No. XIX of the "Historisch-nationalokonomische Section". Owing to the rapidly decreasing available space in our Library, we are forced to confine our accessions to Natural Science, and, under these circumstances, I beg that you will in the future omit the Histor.-nationalokonom. Section" from your despatches to us.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
