I am obliged for your letter of yesterday's date explaining and rectifying error in our Deposit Account. At the same time, I must further trouble you to "furnish the particulars" for which I asked in my last letter. The £32-3-1 (which rightly belongs to our "General Account") has to be split up into sundry ledger accounts, and our accountant says that I must press for a statement of the way in which this amount is made up.
I am, yours faithfully,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
