With reference to your letter of November 29th last I have had the indices to the Council Minutes [faded typescript words] regret to say that I have not been able to find any reference[?] to the Mountain Barometer which you state was presented to the late Judge McCord by this Society. However, if I should find any reference to it at any time, I shall be pressed to let you know.
I am, faithfully yours,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
