TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Gordon P. G. Hills Esquire; Fircroft, Cookham Dean, Berks
Date17 October 1921
DescriptionInforms Mr. Gordon P. G. Hills that Peter Woulfe's name appears on their Fellows list for 1803, but not 1804, hence why his death is attributed to 1803. Thanks him for his offer to send in his papers on Charles Rainsford but declines on the grounds that they are not of scientific interest.
