DescriptionRix, with reference to their recent interview, informs Clay that the Catalogue Committee of the Royal Society have met and considered the questions he posed.

He outlines their decisions: all 160 free copies of the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers' are to be bound in cloth; the cost of packing the copies may be charged to the Society, with those intended to go to overseas societies to go to the agency of Messrs Dulau & Company or another of their regular agents, and those for Fellows to be sent to the Society's office; the list and labels for the presentation copies will be sent to them shortly; the five public libraries may be supplied from the 160 free copies; six from the 160 copies should allowed for reviewing purposes; six copies should be sent to The Times, Athenaeum, Nature, Revue Scientifique, Silliman's Journal, and the Beilblätter of Wiedemanis Anualen.
