The Royal Society are disposing of a quantity of non-scientific Transactions, & I am directed to ask if any of the series shown on the accompanying rough list would be acceptable for the Library of the British Museum. We shall be glad to show the works mentioned, should you wish to have sight of any of them before accepting them. Our hours are 10 to 4, & to 1 on Saturdays.
I am, yours faithfully,
A H White
Asst Librar R.S. [Assistant Librarian, Royal Society]'
Also annotated at the foot of the letter with 'Aug [August] 29 The Librarian, University College, L'don [London]'.
