The ten items in good condition on lightly-aged paper, and with the texts clear and complete. The four letters all bearing the stamp of the Royal Society, and the six notes unstamped. In the first letter he declines to read a paper before the Society. In the second letter (29 October 1929, in autograph) he states that Menzies' 'suggestion that I should become a member of the Royal Society of Arts is put in such a way that I cannot do otherwise than fall in with it!' He is afraid that he 'may disappoint your Council if they think I can fill Sir Thomas Hollands place adequately'. Other items concern Society business, with the last relating to another set of lectures: 'I suggested at the meeting that you should ask Dr. Alexander Scott [...] He has always got something new and interesting to say and to show'. He also suggests 'Professor Munro of this College'.
