|Date||14 April 1916|
In reply to your letter of April 11th, I do not imagine anyone would dispute your claim that Law is a science, but the Royal Society was founded for the advancement of natural science, and the interests of those departments of science to which law and legal archaeology belong are now supposed to be the concern of the British Academy. I enclose a copy of the regulations concering candidates for election.'
