Description'Dear Sir Douglas,
I looked into the matter of your "Transactions" ['Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'] and found that we were ordered to wait for the issue of volume B. This is hindered by a mistake in one of the plates; directly it is out we will send on your parcels.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
