I am very sorry not to have been able to deal sooner with your letter of February 24th. I am now authorised to send you all the "Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]" of which our stock admits between the 1800 and the present date; also, the "Proceedings [of the Royal Society]" from 1855-86. We hope to get you the packet despatched during the forthcoming recess.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
