Date17 October 1892
DescriptionIn answer to de Haan's query enclosed herewith, the number 1484 is not an extract from either of the letters Rix mentions, but is an extract from number 1320 in the Royal Society's catalogue, Hevelius to Oldenburg, Dantzic, 1 June 1665. It is not quite verbatim; there are some slight differences of phrase and grammar. Rix will provide a copy if useful.
