I am very sorry that you have been so poorly; but I am not sorry, as it happens, that the wreaths have not been removed. The Soirée Committee have directed me to ask whether you would be willing to exhibit them a second time, at our Ladies' Conversazione on June 19th. If you agree to this, we can, if you like, keep the wreaths here in safe custody until that date.
I am, yours faithfully,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
