The Royal Society of London subscribed £4 to the Hermite Memorial on November 21, 1892. This sum represents in French money 99 frs [francs] & 96 centimes. In preparing for the annual examination of our accounts, I find no receipt for this amount. I do not doubt that you duly acknowledged it, but your letter unfortunately cannot be found. Will you kindly sign and return to me the enclosed?
