Date13 January 1916
DescriptionReply to an earlier enquiry from Dr. John Horne. To answer Dr. Horne's first two questions, he directs him towards Statutes 10 and 11, Chapter 6, and encloses a copy of each [not enclosed]. With regard to the Secretaries [of the Royal Society], he informs Dr. Horne that the tenure of office is only for one year but there is nothing to prevent their re-election from year to year, as long as it does not exceed ten successive years.
