|Description||'My dear Sir,|
In response to your letter of the 26th January to Dr M. [Michael] Foster, I am now sending twenty-five copies of Bruce's Report on Ngana to the Colonial Office. I have the 100 copies ready to send to Sir W. Hely-Hutchinson, but shall be much obliged by your letting me know whether I may send these to the Colonial Office to be forwarded, or whether they will have to go direct from here.
I am, faithfully yours,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
