In answer to your letter of June 22nd, I have the pleasure to inform you that the President and Council of the Royal Society have ordered that the "Philosophical Transactions" ['Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'] 1884-88, which had been allowed to lapse through inadvertence, shall be sent to your Observatory. You may expect to receive them in the course of a week or two.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
