Date24 June 1912
DescriptionGreat pressure of work has prevented a reply to their letter of 31 May. The Royal Society was founded in 1663, and a complete list of all the meetings held from that date to the present time entails a task which could not be carried out in ordinary office time. The Year Book of the Society was only instituted in 1897.
