With reference to your letter of April 7th., covering a paper entitled "New Method of Expanding Polynomiale", I am to inform you that it has been laid before the Officers of the Society, but that no paper can be accepted which is not duly communicated by a Fellow of the Society. Thanking you, therefore, for your courtesy in submitting the paper, I am, nevertheless, compelled to return the paper herewith.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
