Dear Sir,

Mr Roberton <1> has sent me your letter <2> requesting him to order the printer to cancel the sheet, & immediately print another, omitting your paper, first obtaining my sanction for so doing. I think a moment’s reflection will show you that I could not possibly do this under the present circumstances, & until I receive the sanction of the Council. All that I can be warranted in doing, with a view to meet your wishes, is to suspend the issuing of the Proceedings until further directions from the Council; & this I have taken upon myself to direct, in order to give you the opportunity you wish of applying to the Council on the subject

Yours very truly

P. M. Roget

H. F. Talbot Esqr
&c &c

P. S. I believe I mentioned that I set off tomorrow for Ilfracombe. <3>


1. John David Roberton, assistant Secretary, Royal Society.

2. See Doc. No: 04287, Doc. No: 04288.

3. Ilfracombe, Devon.
