We close from Sunday to Tuesday inclusive, but I could see you on Friday before 4 or on Wednesday the 16th at 4.30, or any other day after that at any time you like to appoint. I may say that I hardly know whether it is worth your while to come, as I am already swamped with committees of all kinds, and am very little inclined to join any more.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
