I am directed by the Treasurer of Royal Society to request that you will have the goodness to furnish us with a signed statement of the various securities which you hold on behalf of the Royal Society, and I am to ask that you will let us have this without delay, as our accounts are closed for audit. The statement should be as for November 11.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
