Description'Dear Sir,
Referring to your letter of yesterday's date, I am sorry that the mistake you mention should have crept into the "Proceedings [of the Royal Society]", but it is too late now to correct it. The responsibility for it rests entirely with the author of the obituary notice.
I am, faithfully yours,
Robt Harrison
Asst. Sec. RS. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
