I am sorry there has been no opportunity of dealing with your application, made so long ago as October 16, 1893, until quite recently. I have now the pleasure to inform you that the Index to the "Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]", 1781-1838, has been granted, and will be sent to you shortly. This is all that has been published.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
