|'Dear Miss Schmitz,
The first year of your engagement by the Royal Society upon work for the Catalogue of Scientific Papers will be completed next week, and the question of renewing the arrangement came before the Catalogue Committee at their meeting held yesterday afternoon. I regret to have to inform you that the Committee decided not to retain your services after the 25th of next December.
I am, My dear Miss Schmitz, very truly yours
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
