TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Dr. B. Truhelka, Paris
Date7 January 1926
DescriptionReplies that there is little material but 3 in the Royal Society relating to the papers of Father Boscovich (18th century). Gives details of the 3 papers. States there could be material relating to Father Boscovich''s mission to California in the Proceedings, but will take a while to comb through the older journal books. Suggests Truhelka get in touch with the Greenwich Observatory and the Astronomer Royal. Gives doubt the British Museum will hold any material, but suggests writing to the Chief Librarian.
