Your letter applying for leave to examine a paper by Prof. Worthington is to hand, but without the inclosure from him which you mention. You are free to examine this and his other papers here, if you will bring Prof. Worthington's note with you. The manuscripts cannot, however, be removed from this house. The Library is open every day from 11 to 6, except Saturday, but tomorrow would not be a convenient day for us.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
