Description'Dear Sir,
The Committee who place the names met last Thursday, and the dinner-plan has gone to the printer. We will give you and your guests the best places that are left vacant. I presume that you wish all to sit together, or no doubt we could find you still better places if you sat two and two.
Yours faithfully,
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
