Your letter of April 29, addressed to the President, was duly received, & has been laid before the Officers. There is no doubt that the Society will gladly accept the bequest of the late Thomas Kerslake. The Council will meet on this day week, & after that date I hope to be able to send you an official communication.
I am, yours faithfully
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
