DescriptionAsks that their Mr Knight advise Sir William Bowman on the best way of reproducing a plate as the original is missing. It is noted as one of the set of copper plates, the rest of which are in their possession, and from which they supplied proofs to Bowman. If the order is given, it will not be from the Royal Society as it is a private matter.

Asks that Knight be at 5 Clifford Street at 10am on Monday for the previously named reason.
