Date27 July 1891
Description'Dear Sir,
The Library Committee having adopted your recommendation concerning the disposal of their collection of charts in the Society's possession, I am to ask if you could send from the Hydrographic Office some one who could make the selection of such old editions as you would desire to have transferred to the Admiralty collection. We are anxious to dispose of our accumulation during the vacation and with as little delay as possible.
Yours obediently,
A H White
Asst. Librar. R.S. [Assistant Librarian, Royal Society]'.
