Date11 July 1892
DescriptionThey have been looking through the parcel of papers Hutton sent some time ago in support of his claims as a candidate, with the view of separating and keeping, with Hutton's permission, those not excerpted and already in the Society's library.

They would like to keep for the library; the lecture on Darwinisim, pages one to forty eight of the 'Journal de Conchyliologie', the photograph for the Royal Society album, and the photographs in the course of collection. The remainder of the pamphlets shall be returned through the Agent General to whom the Society are at present sending the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' and other publications.
