Date28 July 1893
Description'Dear Sirs,
In answer to yours of the 25th inst. [instant], I have now consulted our Treasurer, and, although the price of lot 818 appears to be rather high, the Treasurer has decided to give ten guineas, as several of the papers are interesting to our Society. Will you communicate with your client accordingly? I will send the cheque in a day or two to you.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
