Description[David] Bruce's report is in type and the illustrations, since Hutchinson's telegram stating that the old blocks are not available, are being pushed on as rapidly as possible. Foster will send some proof copies as soon as they get the figures done.

The Society are awaiting with great interest the arrival of the 'Illovo' with the Nagani animals and have made all arrangements for receiving them as soon as the vessel arrives. The Society has no laboratory at Burlington House and the experiments with the animals will be carried out for the present at St Bartholomew's Hospital.
