I will lay your letter of 26th before the Council at their next meeting. The "Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]" for five years are due to you without special vote; but those before that date are forfeited by non-application, under the old Statute (which is just superseded), and require a vote of Council.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
