|Description||'Dear Mr Howard,|
I have your cheque for £40-0-5 for which I inclose receipt, returning at the same time your income tax receipt. You have forgotten, however, that last Michaelmas the income tax for the half year was deducted, so that we owe you income tax for half year only, not for the whole, and your cheque should have been for £41-5-2. We shall be glad to receive the difference of £1-4-9 at your convenience.
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
