In a letter from Mrs Bruce Joy dated December 11, 1890, we were informed that you were in America, and that the copy of the Davy Medal, which was made I believe by your desire and presented to you by the Royal Society, was to be kept here until your return, when it would be sent for. Since then we have heard nothing about it. The Medal is still in our possession and is at your disposal.
I am, yours faithfully,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
