DescriptionIs greatly obliged by their note and sketch plan of the tables in the Guildhall, which will be most useful in arranging the seats at the tables. The President of the Royal Society would like to know if it will be possible to arrange that his chair is placed upon a little platform, seven or eight inches high, so as to enable him to be well above the heads of the assembled company when he has to address them.
