Date13 January 1899
DescriptionShall be greatly obliged if the Messrs can let him have by Tuesday next, the account for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' volume 191 (B) and volume 193 (A), or at least some probable idea of the cost of the latter. Would also be glad for the Messrs accounts for the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' numbers 419, 420, 421 and of some idea of the probable cost of number 422. The Treasurer [Alfred Bray Kempe] is desirous of the Messrs rendering their accounts at more regular intervals and it would be convenient if they could send in their accounts shortly after the publication of a volume of the 'Transactions', or a number of the 'Proceedings'.
