DescriptionAcknowledges receipt of Mr Mowatt's letter of 16 March to the President of the Royal Society which informs him that the Lord Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury have decided to grant to the Society the surplus copies of the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers' currently in the Stationery Office, and Foster is directed to convey their thanks.
