|Description||'Dear Mr Blandford|
I am sending you herewith the proof of the coloured plate of the Tsetse Fly just received from the lithographers, and shall be much obliged by your examining it and returning it as soon as possible with your comments. Perhaps you would take an opportunity of showing it to Dr Kanthack if you see him, as he is looking over the proof of the Report generally. The Report has been waiting for the illustrations, and I shall, therefore, be glad to put them in hand as soon as possible.
I am, yours faithfully,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
