|Description||'Dear Dr Woodward,|
Mr Mallard Reade's certificate was resuspended on November 10th at your request. Inclosed herewith I send you two supplemental certificate forms. I am sadly afraid you did not carefully study the revised statutes, if you are unaware of the existence of these forms!*
I am, yours truly
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]
* Perhaps you do not know that the dear old Statute which authorised the President to keep on his hat in the presence of the Fellows, has been abrogated. I almost shed tears over that'.
