My telegram signified that Dr Risien Russell's paper is to be taken this week, and he wants his illustrations immediately to make lantern slides. I suppose it will not be possible for us to have them to-day, but I trust that you will let us have them the first thing tomorrow morning at latest.
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]
We shall also want the MS. [manuscript] a loan for use on Thursday'.
