With respect to your application of November 2nd 1893, I have to explain that an unusual press of business has prevented the Committee from dealing with these applications until quite recently. I have now the pleasure to inform you that volumes IX and X of the "Catalogue of Scientific Papers" will be sent to you by Messrs. Clay & Sons very shortly.
I am, yours truly,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
