DescriptionRix regrets that in response to Mr Fortescue's letter of 16 September, they only have some of the lists of Fellows for which he applied, as those of 1824, 1825-31, 1838, 1840, 1843-44, 1846-47, 1849, 1859 and 1860 are out of print.

The list for 1891 will not be published until the end of the year.
