Description'Dear Sir,
I beg to thank you for your very kind offer to present a copy of your Life of Archbishop King to the Royal Society's Library, but I dare not accept it, for the reason that our accommodation is greatly overcroweded and therefore we are quite debarred from adding anything to our Library that does not fall strictly within the province of exact science.'
