DescriptionSends thanks for Treub's letter of 3 October to Mr James. Rix notes that the Royal Society has purchased volume seven, parts one and two or the 'Annuals due Jardin', and if they will send part three and all subsequent parts, the Society will send all copies of 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' published from this time. Also asks if they would be willing to exchange back issues for the equivalent in 'Proceedings' as they have none of the first six volumes.
