I have your note of the 1st inst. [instant] and now write to say that at the last meeting of our Library Committee the question of exchange was taken into consideration. The volumes which you have been good enough to present in the past, have been placed in the Society's library, but I regret to say that the Committee do not see their way to institute a regular exchange of the Society's publications.
I am, Dear Sirs,
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
