Description'Dear Sir,
The Society has been so fully occupied with all kinds of pressing matters of late that I am sorry to say the Library Committee (before which your application will come) has not met since June. Your request is not forgotten, and I quite hope that very shortly we shall be able to hold a meeting and consider it.
I am, very truly yours,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
