DescriptionIn continuation of his letter of 18 June, Foster forwards a recommendation [not enclosed] which the Society desires to make for the representation of surplus copies of various listed parts of the 'Challenger' reports to the Swedish-Norwegian Antarctic Expedition. In view of the fact that the 'Antarctic' conveying the expedition is leaving Sweden in the course of the next few days, it is hoped the Lords of Treasury may be able to give instruction for early dispatch of the volumes.
