Description'Dear Sir,
I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of February 36th, enclosing a paper entitled "Die Materia der chemischen Elements und das Wesen der chemischen Reaktion" for consideration. It is an established rule of the Royal Society that no paper intended for the Society can be accepted unless it is communicated by a Fellow or Foreign Member; and, in the case of the paper sent by you, it has been decided after careful consideration that it is not possible to make an exception to this rule. I therefore return your communication to you by this post.'
