I thank you for the account of your sales, just received, and for the enclosures in cheques & stamps amounting to £16-19-6 for which I enclose receipt. Would it be very troublesome to you let us have a list of what you still have in stock at the time of your rendering account of sales? Our English agents do this each year, and we find it convenient.
Yours very truly
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
