|Description||'Dear Mr Dove,|
I have sent you this morning by Parcels Delivery Company a large parcel of stationary belonging to the Royal Historical Society, and inside you will find a small parcel containing personal matters of your own. You left here a despatch box and a cash box, belonging, I presume, to the Transit of Venus Commission. If that conjecture is correct, I suppose the keys of them (which are doubtless in your possession) should be handed to our Treasurer?
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
