TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary and Librarian of the Royal Society; to Theodore Mackenzie Esq., Grahamstown, South Africa.
Date6 August 1924
DescriptionReplies that both of the articles by Mason and Dixon which Teodore Mackenizie expresses interest in are entirely tabular and unsuited for typing, hence why the former typist may have refused to type them. Also asks for an exact reference of the letter from the Royal Society to Mason found in the Speculum Hartwillianum, so it can be ascertained whether the Royal Society holds a copy. Details of the articles are given.
