Description'When sending here a parcel of addressed wrappers according to the Proceedings ['Proceedings of the Royal Society'] list (such as the addressed Statutes for all the Fellows, received today) will you please instruct for them to be arranged alphabetically, with the exception of the Foreign Members which can be kept in a separate bundle as heretofore. Sometimes we require to post these things at once, but we have to sort & arrange, & there is a great delay when added to the necessary checking as well'.
