Adverting to your letter of the 8th inst. (L. 2614), I have ascertained, since writing to the Controller, that this Society has already received authority to requisition the Stationery Office for blue-books, and I, therefore, enclose a requisition for the blue-book under reference, and shall be much obliged if you can let me have it with as little delay as possible.
I am, yours faithfully,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
