In answer to your note of the 28th, I had the opportunity yesterday of submitting your list to our Treasurer. He has desired us to make a careful examination of the list in order to ascertain which of the portraits we do not possess in our large collection. As soon as we have had time to do this, I will return your list with those marked which we should like to see.
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
