WILLIAM JAMES RUSSELL autograph letter Signed.

British (English) chemist.

ALS.  2pp.  On Athenaeum Club embossed stationary.  34 Upper Hamilton Ter.  October 18th 1894.  To "My dear Blyth".

"I have received your letter of the 15th about the Society of Engineers having the use of the Chem. Soc. rooms at Burlington House.  The matter no doubt will come up at the next Council, which probably will not take place till next month.  So many Societys have  [. . .?] upon us, that I should think we are pretty nearly full.  I suppose your Society is really a scientific soc.  I say this because I am sure this Society would not feel justified in letting any but a really Scientific Soc. have the use of their rooms.  You may feel sure the matter will be full discussed and fairly dealt with.  Hope you have had a good holiday."

8vo bifolium. Approx 7 x 4.5 inches (18 x 11.5 cms).  Some mounting damage to integral blank leaf, else near fine.
