He notes this is just a day or two off, and says that he hoped Sir [Edwin] Ray Lankester, FRS, KCB will let them have the books back as soon after that date as he can, and during the month of August. He requests that he remits the stamps to the value of the postage, as the borrower pays the carriage cost.
