Description'Dear Sir,
With reference to your letter of the 21st instant, I have to inform you that, as notified to Fellows of the second page of the wrapper of the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]', the Library of the Royal Society is closed for cleaning from August 23rd to september 4th, and that, by order of the Council, no books may be borrowed during the month of August.
Your letter will be attended to immediately on the re-opening of the Library, but in the meantime I regret that, as the Serial Catalogue is at the Binders for repair, it is not possible to say whether or not the publication you require is in the Library.'
