Description'Dear Sir,
In reply to your letter of December 30, I regret that I can give you no information as to the qualifications of Ephraim Chambers for the Fellowship. We have no certificates of candidature for the Fellowship prior to 1731, but our records show that Ephraim Chambers was elected a Fellow of the Society on November 6th, 1729.'
